On the Fly: Tricked Out Bed Rails

My sweet husband made these bed rails for the Little Miss awhile back, but they are unfinished pieces of wood and none too lovely on their own. I had material leftover from the headboard project and my fabric shopping spree awhile back and decided to make some padded "bumper"-esque covers for the bed rails. Now I feel like I can put her in her bed for naps and start getting her used to the idea that maybe she will NOT sleep with Mom and Dad forever. And by maybe, I mean definitely.This project was way more labor intensive than I anticipated, but the end result was worth it. It was my first real experience with piecing multiple fabrics together to make a kind of quilt-top before completing it with the batting and velcro closures. It was fun though. I debated about whether I should put all the food pictures on the outside, but in the end I decided I would let Little Miss "enjoy them" from her viewpoint in bed. Plus, the purple strip on the outside helps to pull the headboard and rails into a more uniform look. Or something.
