I started my New Year off with something that I love to do....sewing!
Remember the single ruffled slipcovers I had on these stools? Well, I added another ruffle instead of making new floral ones.
(I can't commit to a pattern)
I also made new place mats with a little more green and pink along with blue. I love how they turned out!
Then I made an Austrian shade for this bedroom window. I originally had a shabby chic shade that I confiscated for the window wall instead of buying another one.
I just used thin elastic and stretched it as I sewed it to the back to get the gathers right. A pretty easy sewing job this way....
I had a vintage shade frame that I recovered in cotton and some tulle. I then added some home made roses in clusters with hot glue.
I got a bad burn from one of the roses....and now I can't feel the tip of my finger, lol. I told the hubby that I've heard how some people can burn their prints off of their fingers...well, I think I did!
But the shade turned out pretty. I had a wedding dress pictured in my head as I made it.
Pictures do not do it justice!
Then I worked on some bunting to add to our canopy bed.
I thought it needed something up top, but didn't want to add more fabric...so the bunting did it for me.
I had some fabric left over and found some lace that I had had. I love not having to go out and buy new stuff.
Just something simple as this can make a cute difference to something kind of plain and bare.
So there you have what I have been doing. I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. I still can't believe it's 2015!
