We thought we were being brilliant! Alas, 'twas not the case! We have a full, foam mattress from Ikea. I made a cloth outline of the current
v-berth mattress and placed that on the ikea mattress, we then chopped it up to fit the pattern, turning the bottom triangles on their sides to complete the top 'V' of the mattress shape.
Long story short (too late), we decided to wash the mattress cover, and it shrank. Dammit. I'm going to sew a new mattress cover and thought I would ask all ye salty dogs
for recommendations on a good material.
Should I stick with cotton? Use something a little more water
resistant? Regardless, I'll have sheets
on top of it, but thought I would check before I started sewing away.
Thanks for any help.
