Q: I purchased a complete set of crib bedding that came with crib sheets, a small comforter, changing table covers, crib skirt, diaper stacker, valance, and bumpers. I never used the crib bumper, and I don't intend to use it, ever. So what do I do with it? I can sew and I'm pretty crafty. I I want to get it out of my closet (my son is a year and a half old now), but don't want to throw out that coordinating fabric (even if it is a long skinny piece). Any creative ideas? I don't really need artwork, any more blankets.... could I somehow upholster a kid-size chair with it (which I don't have but would like)? Make a beanbag chair? I'd love to see what readers can come up with!! Such a creative bunch.
