found a piece of forgotten fabric the other day in my linen cupboard, it was a piece of laura ashleys nautical range that i won off ebay about 2 years ago now,
it was way before i had any inkling to do any real sewing and i had used some of it to make some bunting for my babies room
how did i make bunting without sewing... with straws and glue!!.. id got the idea from a childrens craft website !!
anyways i was left with quite a good size so thought id make a blind. well i didnt have that much so i just made a pelmet but i think it looks pretty effective.. i think the red blind underneath with the eyelets in also has a nautical feel to it ( they could be the windows of a boat!!) so im quite liking it together
what do you think ??
i love this room.its such a bright room and i was a bit worried that when we moved the baby in here aswell as our toddler that the cot would make it feel really cramped but it hasnt i dont think..
obviously we'll have to get them bunk beds in a couple of years if we dont move as we only have a two bedroom house but even that i think will work heres a couple of pics
i love the nautical theme that it has got running through it . im sure as they get older they'll want to change it.. so im going to start brainwashing them to like the cath kidston cowboy range or the london design..which i think is quite cool!!..
who says its got nothing to do with me.. its their space pah.. its my house!!!!!
what do you think of this lovely quilted throw i bought for both boys from ikea ..they only cost £7.99 or somthing a bit daft, until i learn how to make one they can have these as i think its really nice. they are lovely and snuggly and my toddler uses his for his afternoon nap!
i made another cushion aswell this week seen as i had the sewing machine out i thought id go mad!!
.. a spotty one this time..although i really want to make the "home"cushion that hen has made ..check out her blog ..... http://henhousehomemade.blogspot.com ....... they are sooo nice.. i think i'll have to have a few practise runs first though as i am pretty rubbish at sewing..so slapdash !!!
but im really loving the stripes and flowers and spots together..it just works doesnt it, thats why i love the whole shabby chic look..nothing has to be to matchy matchy.. but somehow it still goes together !!
right i have both boys asleep at the minute so im going to take advantage of the peace and quiet and have some homemade chocolate cake and a nice cuppa hmmmm!!
( it actually looks disgusting doesnt it but it does taste nice!!!)
