A - O
Gathered Crib Skirt - This is a one and a half times gathered skirt - what this means is the short side panels
will be made of 42" of fabric, the long sides will be made of 78" of fabric, and both are gathered down to their respective
sizes. For most people this creates an adequately gathered skirt without adding very much fullness to it.
Gathered Crib Skirt - This is a two times gathered skirt - what this means is the short side panels will be made
of 56" of fabric, the long sides will be made of 104" of fabric, and both are gathered down to their respective sizes.
This creates a very gathered look and the skirt is adequately full for most people.
Gathered Crib Skirt - This is a two and a half times gathered skirt - what this means is the short side
panels will be made of 70" of fabric, the long sides will be made of 130" of fabric, and both are gathered down to their respective
sizes. This creates an extremely gathered look and the skirt is very full.
4 Pc. Bumper Pads - The 4 pc. bumper pads are made in 4
pieces. One pad for each side of the crib. They come standard with only 1 (one) fabric choice, they fit a
standard crib size (28"x52"), and stand approximately 9" high. There are ties on all 4 corners and the center of each
longer pad and loops on the 4 corners of the shorter pads. All ties and loops are made with either biased tape or ribbon
(based on client preference). All ties are 12" long, loops are large enough to accommodate the ties (approx. 3").
Applique - An applique is either a store bought or hand-made
design that is stitched to the outside of any item. For example, you can add several flower or baseball appliques
on a block quilt to create a cute motif for your nursery, or you can buy a turtle applique from the store and have it
either ironed on or hand-sewn on (store bought appliques vary in type, some are iron on's and others are not. Iron on's
do not always have the same lifetime and durability as hand-sewn).
Basic Block Quilt - A basic block quilt top is made up of
multi-colored or patterned squares set in a grid, the bottom is a single fabric, it is lined standard with low loft batting,
and bound with biased tape. It is very easy to get creative with this design - especially if you choose multiple textures
and colors of fabric for your blocks. Your new baby will love to feel the different textures and see
the different colors as their eyesight and sense of touch develop. The basic block quilt does not include any appliques.
Batting - Batting is the filler that goes into a comforter
or quilt that makes them slightly plush. Batting can also be used in bumper pads or other items as a thinner padding.
It comes in either polyester, cotton or a blend of both. Polyester is used standard, please notify us if you prefer
100% cotton instead.
Block Quilt - The block quilt is the same as the "Basic
Block Quilt", however it does include up to 1 (one) applique per square. This look is good if you want to create
a simple themed quilt. By adding a simple heart, flower, frog, or even many different shapes, to the quilt you can add
a splash of style to your nursery.
Comforter - A comforter is made of 2 pieces of fabric, lined
with low loft batting, and bound with biased tape. It differs from a quilt in that both the top and bottom are
made of a single sheet of fabric. The comfort is quilted in either a standard grid pattern or straight lines every
Crib Skirt - A crib skirt has a top of sturdy lining (white
or off white fabric made to endure the springs on the crib frame). The actual skirt comes in 4 panels (2 short sides
and 2 long sides) to fit a standard size crib (28"x52" - frames are generally 26"x50," please inform us if yours is different). The
standard crib skirt ranges between 10"-20" long (from lining to bottom seam), the panels are only a single layer of fabric, and
a single fabric choice for all 4 panels.
Fitted Sheet - a fitted sheet goes over the top of the mattress
and has a casing around the edge with elastic to keep the sheet snug.
Flat Crib Skirt - The panels of a flat crib skirt are made
standard of a single fabric choice pulled straight. It is a very simple look for your crib if you are going with
a basic nursery.
Flat Sheet - a flat sheet is a single flat piece of fabric
finished on all four edges. Flat sheets are generally sized so that they will fit over the top and sides of the mattress
with an additional 6"-8" to tuck under the mattress.
Foam - Foam is a type of stuffing or filler that is
sturdier than batting. If you are trying to achieve a more solid and upright look for your bumpers, foam is the
way to go. One problem with foam is that it creates a very "rigid" look and the angles can be very sharp (because it
is firmer than batting and has a difinitive shape). One way to help or eliminate this is to have your bumper foam lined
with batting as well. This will make them slightly thicker than just foam or batting, but will also give you stability
in the bumper and the softer curves to the edges.
"Full Stuffed" - Full stuffed refers to bumper pads that
are filled with polyester fiberfill (usually used for making pillows) to create a more "rounded" and full look for the bumper
pad. Full stuffed bumpers tend to range shorter than other bumpers because some of the height is lost in gaining the
fullness of the bumper.
- A inverted pleat is when the fabric is folded over to create a sort of gather in a single spot that will
open gradually from top to bottom. Inverted pleats can be dressed up by placing a secondary fabric choice
inside the pleat so that as the pleat "opens" towards the bottom more of the secondary fabric shows.
Mosquito Net - A mosquito net is a sheer fabric attached
to either a hook or hoop that goes over a bed to keep mosquitos and other pests from bothering the occupant as they sleep.
These nets come in handy for wetter climates where mosquitos can be a problem. They can be problematic when used for
infant or toddler beds if the child can and does decide to play with the long loose fabric at night. The child can become
entangled or pull the net down on themselves - exercise caution when using this item for children of any age.
