Double Gauze - Crib Sheet Tutorial


Today I'm going to show you how easy it is to create your own crib sheet from double gauze fabric.

Crib sheets are the new baby gifts you need to be giving! New moms can only use so many swaddles, but what they do need are beautiful crib sheets – and Double Gauze should be your go-to fabric. It is also the easiest way to change the décor in a baby or toddler room!

Double gauze is 100% cotton and has a loose weave. It is floaty and soft and the perfect fabric for babies to sleep on.

Crib sheets are an easy thing to make and you only need 2 yards of fabric!
