WOWZAH!!!

I am soo proud of myself...!!!
i have been working on the babys crib set recently and have been making it on my own...so far i have the dust ruffle almost complete( need to get more fabric) and today i made... a crib sheet!!!it seemed a bit daunting at first but it was soo much easier than i thought.
i used 2 different tutorials...
i used the measurements from this site...
cut the fabric to 43 by 66 inch rectanngle, cut out 8 by 8 inch square from each corner. i sewed the 'corner' together. starting at the bottom so it is even....
then i used this tutorial to add the elastic to the corners...
4- 12inch pieces of 3/4 elastic folded in half and lined up fold with corner seam. pinned it theere an streched as i sewed.. after adding elastic i made a hem over the elastic.. turned out awesome. the best part is it is personalized to our tasted. and cost less than most crib sheets. i bought the fabric from walmart for 2.22 a yard. got a lil over 2 yards... cost me $5 all together, and i even have fabric squares and scraps leftover to play with..!! happy with the results.

Ill post some tutorial pics of how i did it when i make some more sheets!! which i will be doing for sure!!
