Crafted by Talia

We didn't have very much room for a crib or toddler bed when Zoey was born. So we opted to use a play pen or now-a-days is called a "pack n' play." it worked out fine till we figured out she hates being confined in it. I began to look for convertible cribs or toddler beds and they're just as expensive! So I wondered if I made it, would it be any better or cheaper!?
I love projects! I love DIY! (although I get sad when my DIY doesn't turn out pretty.)
This is what resulted after my search and I'm quite happy with the results! Not only does it fit perfectly where her pack n' play was but it looks cute and was extremely affordable!!!
Luckily my brother decided to put this part together, so I didn't have to!

This is where I came in. Stuffed the outside with batting.

Covered it with upholstery fabric. I chose a soft fabric too.

And voilĂ !!

Sooooo QQ!!!

You can get instructions from Design Mom. This actually only cost me about $18 because we had all the wood laying around. We have a fairly local fabric store that was pretty cheap. For her bed I only used 1 1/2 yards at approximately $4/yard. The batting was $8 (i had a coupon) from Joann's Fabric and I used 2 yards.
