Works in Progress Wednesday: Curtains for Baby Ewan7:30:00 AM
(I should really stop calling him Baby Ewan. He's 16 months going on 5 years. The kid is a going concern.)
I have to apologize to my quilty-readers. I hope I've not been boring you too much as of late with all of my talk of decorating and house shtuff and DIY shenanigans.
Here I go again!
I'm busy making some curtains for Ewan's room out of this super fabulous duck cloth (I LOVE duck cloth. Didn't know it before this project, but now I do. LOVE.) with retro cars and trucks printed all over it.
I wanted a fabric that was boyish, but that wasn't too or overly juvenile - because he's a cool dude (but mostly because this mama is freakin' busy and won't have time in 2 years to make more curtains, hahaha.). I needed something that would grow with him but would be relatively easy to decorate around.
Plus: HOLY COW BATMAN, have you SEEN the cost of curtains nowadays??? Uh, wowzas.
Let's just say that I hit a home dec sale, with a coupon, at a popular online store and scored everything to make his curtains for a heck of a lot less than what I would have paid for the equivalent quality off the shelf.
I realized recently that it's been a long time since I have written and shared a tutorial with my readers, and I thought that this would be a great opportunity to get back into the swing of blogging by writing up this project.
Especially because I'm using grommets. Yup. And they are NOT scary, and you do NOT need any special tools. Hang on to your crafty panties, people. Cute things are coming.
