Disaster averted. Then created.

This morning I woke up to screaming.  Terror.  Inconsolable crying.  Why?  Because my daughter who loves order and absolutely panics when anything is broken, kicked a hole through the netting on her bed rail.  "MOMMMMMYYYYYY FIIIXXXXXX  ITTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!"  How do you even begin to fix weird shredded stretchy netting?  Did I feel like going to Babies R Us (2o minutes away) buying a new one ($30) and killing an hour building it (if you have one you know how horrible that is)? Not really.  
So I got out some fabric and made this little cover.  About a 1 on the easy scale... the rail was the exact width of the fabric.  The best part, the girls played nicely (fought, screamed and destroyed the entire house) the whole time I was sewing.  Love that.  Now she can nap in peace while I undo the disaster they created.
