Having a baby? Or have a friend who is? Or maybe your sister? Your daughter? You know, one of those people you know who would be having a baby? Or… maybe you want to make one of these for someone you don’t know at all. Heck, it could happen.
Back to it. We’re almost done. Make 3” loops with your bias tape or ribbon and pin them in place 1” from each corner of the closing end. The loops are inside the tube and the ends stick out. Like we did the ties above. Stitch these in place 1/4” from the edge of your fabric, and then fold the ends of the tube in so that the loops stick out and the ends are tucked in. Stitch the entire width of the tube with a 1/2” seam allowance. This closes your bumper! Ta da! Whew! High five!
Please, oh, please, oh pleeeeeeeeease send me your feedback if you make one. I’d love to see your finished work or hear your complaints about my descriptions of the process and improve the tutorial. I might even make this into a pattern some day since I know that some folks would much prefer to see something like this laid out than try to follow the description. I’d loooove to hear what you think? Yes, I’m already just sitting in front of my computer, just watching the inbox, hoping hoping hoping for your message. You just go about your business. When you’re ready to talk, I’ll still be here. Waiting.
Yep, still here.
P.S. I thought you might like to see another version of this. Happens to be the one I made first, for my own M. Here it is– instead of layer caking it, I made a very long strip of what were essentially jelly roll pieces that I cut partly from upcycled materials and partly from new goodies.
