First we had the Cute Crib Sheet Tutorial which was a really easy way to make a crib sheet using your sewing machine. Then we had the Crib Sheet Tutorial: Part 2, a more finished end product for gift-giving, featuring encased elastic all the way around the edge. Now here is the Serger Crib Sheet. This version is the simplest of them all with the help of a serger. It’s not the prettiest but it’s definitely the fastest way to turn a few yards of lovely fabric into a crib sheet for your babe.Start a piece of fabric 42/44″ x 66″. I used Aneela Hoey, Walk In The Woods which is on sale right now! If you are gifting the sheet and would prefer to not pre-wash the fabric, keep the length at 68″ instead. Quinn’s awesome boots are c/o Boggs.
1. From each corner, cut away an 8″ square.
2. Keep the selvage (existing edge) on the two long sides, It’s a ready-made finished edge! On the two short ends, finish on the serger.
3. Fold the corner so that the 8″ sides of the corner line up with right-side-facing.
4. Serge the 8″ sides together.
5. Stitch about 1/2 inch then pull the thread “tail” around from behind and across the stitching path to secure the thread ends from unraveling.
6. Repeat on all 4 corners.
You have the basic shape of the sheet. Now we just need to add elastic.
7. Cut 4 – 10″ lengths of 1/4″ elastic and pin the center of each to the seam of a corner.
8. Move over to the sewing machine to sew on the elastic with a basic stretch stitch. A zig-zag will also work. With the elastic stretched to the max, sew it to the very edge of the corner, starting and ending with a few back stitches.
Repeat on all 4 corners. It’s not the prettiest finish but it’s so easy and you’ll never see it!
Pop it on your favorite crib or toddler bed and tuck in a sweet baby!

Thanks for the tutorial! I just got a serger so I’m excited to try this! Did you make the quilt too? It looks like it’s Dream On fabric, which I have a couple of charm packs of stashed away to make a quilt for my daughter someday. Looked around the blog a little but I couldn’t find any post on it. Thanks!
I love your website and all your tutorials. I was wondering if you made your daughter’s dress/romper? It looks adorable and I was hoping you made it so there would be a tutorial? 🙂
SUPER cute… and I love those pony stickers! 🙂 My daughter would adore those!
Great and simple! I took some old worn sheets and made doggy bed covers for my two awesome pit bull niece and nephew! They loved their new bed covers!
