Ahoy Matey Nautical Crib Skirt

While I was pregnant with my son, I kept busy by sewing decor for his nautical nursery. I made a diaper stacker, crib quilt, curtains, and crib skirt for his nursery. I used fabric from Michael Miller's Ahoy Matey collection. While I was searching for ideas for my son's nursery, I was inspired by a valance I found.

So I decided to create a crib skirt using several fabrics from the Ahoy Matey collection.  I recycled the crib skirt from my daughter's nursery bedding, so that I'd have the sizing correct and wouldn't have to use any new fabric for the part of the crib skirt that would be hidden under the mattress.

I'm pleased with how the crib skirt turned out, and I can't wait to show you the rest of his nursery. So check back soon to see what I create next!
