Difficulty: ★ (1 of 3)
Prylis the Crib Pocket is sewn in woven fabric (fabric that does not stretch). Since fabric has a tendency to shrink when you prewash it, I recommend buying a little extra.
Prylis consists of a back piece, a pocket and three ribbons. You can choose to use different fabrics on the front and back or have the same fabric throughout. You can also choose to sew the ribbons yourself or buy ready-made. You can find a tutorial on how I usually sew my own ribbons here.
Prylis the Crib Pocket holds all your in-the-middle-of-the-night-must-haves so you don't have to look for pacifiers or nappies in the dark ever again!
The finished Crib Pocket is approx. 38 cm x 25 cm (15" x 14") in size, and is hung on the crib using three straps.

What does stretch percentage mean?
The term "stretch percentage" is used to indicate how much a fabric stretches.
This should not be confused with the proportion of elastane present in the fabric (eg jersey 95% cotton, 5% elastane).
Some patterns are created with a certain percentage of stretch in mind, and if your fabric has a different percentage of stretch, you may need to adjust the size.
In all By Sandramaria patterns' product descriptions, it is clearly stated if you need fabric with a certain stretch price to be able to sew the project. In that case, you see this even before you buy the pattern.
You can e.g. use this stretch guide to determine the stretch percentage of your fabric.
