Whenever you are doing some baby stuff, you should be very aware of the important factors to consider. First, there is size, there is comfort, and there is style.
Among the many baby things, the rag quilt is one that you can do on your own. They are readily available in baby stores but if you want to give it some personal touch, you can do the rag quilt on your own.
Your baby rag quilt dimensions will roughly depend on the actual size of the crib. Most cribs available today measures 28 x 34 inches. Your rag quilt must also be within that size range. You can make some allowances if you want the quilt to be tucked in. If you want it all laid out, going for the exact size of the crib is the best way to go.
Making the Quilt
To make the rag quilt for your baby, you must first lay down the materials. Choose the fabric to use. Remember that it should be comfortable enough for baby. When the issue on comfort is taken cared of, you can easily check out the available styles and designs. The design of the fabric you choose depends on your taste and your preference so as to match it with the current style of the baby room.
Aside from the fabric, you must also prepare your scissors, your sewing machine, your measuring tape, some pins, thread, and scrap batting.
