We got my husband's adorable wooden cradle from when he was a baby. I love it! Its so old fashioned and different from today's style.
Since its old and custom made its a little difficult to find sheets for it. So it just made sense for me to make my own.
I chose these two fabrics from the craft store. I tried to go as neutral as possible. I wanted something character like, these owls were the best I could find for being somewhat gender neutral.
I actually made these more like pillow cases to slide on and off the cradle pad. They were super easy to make.
