I was ironing the cheap pre-made skirt I got at Target (it's a white, full sized bedskirt, but I trimmed it down) when I put the iron down on the part that goes under the mattress and it instantly MELTED! There's a giant hole there now. I turned the iron off immediately, and now that it's cool I need to make sure it's not ruined.
If it is, I'll have to go out and get a new iron. Bummer.
I'm not worried about the hole- it can be easily patched or I can just leave it... that part will be hidden anyway.
Edited to add: The iron was ruined, so I went and got a new one, plus a cute new ironing board cover.
I trimmed down the bedskirt so it would fit the crib, and when I tried it on the crib, I realized that any embellishment I do on it will be pretty much hidden by the wide slats of the crib. I ended up just leaving it plain white. No big deal, it was only $4 on clearance!
