I've been hemming some curtains lately. The only thing that is exciting about the curtain hemming is the fact that we actually have some privacy in our new house with the finishing of each window (which is actually very few at this point). I also hemmed some cute IKEA curtains for Marcus' preschool.
|I found these curtains in the clearance bin at IKEA for $8 a set! What a deal! I love how light and airy they are, especially on a sunny day like today! The ant farm is my favorite part of this picture, though.|
The monotony of curtain hemming has been spiced up by one very exciting development. Take a look at what I'm ready to purchase next...
And why would I want a Hello Kitty sewing machine? Because I'm having a GIRL! Yay! So, even though I don't have the curtains done for the rooms where family members who have actually already been born are living, I am totally planning the baby girl's room. I plan to make curtains, a crib skirt, a quilt, and some fabric baskets for the changing table. What do you think of my options?
|Choice #1: Suzy Ultman Critter Community|
I was thinking of using this one-yard panel for the front of the blanket and for the fabric baskets.
|And this print (sorry so fuzzy) for the crib skirt and the curtains.|
|Choice #3: Michael Miller/Sara Jane Children At Play Dolls|
I love this. It think it is my favorite. I have to buy a new crib,
and I'm imagining a white one with spindles would look so great with this.
|I'd pair Dolls with this polka-dot print from the same line.|
