5 minutes DIY fitted sheet for moses basket

My due date is pretty close now, so I am trying to finish all little sewing projects for the little one. Today I made fitted sheet from spare fabric and it took me basically 5-7 minutes with all the measuring, cutting & sewing. I can imagine how often sheets need to be changed when it comes to baby, so I will definitely do more! 

Take the mattress out of the moses basket and put on fabric. Allow 3 inches for seaming on each side when cutting the fabric.

Sew a casing seam all the way around the fabric and then sew on elastic band. I used 5mm thin elastic band.  Don't forget to stretch it  when sewing on!

And that's it! Easy peasy!
