Since Maddy and I have been sewing together,
one of our favorite things to do on the weekend is . . .
look at fabrics!
I know, I know, it sounds crazy, doesn't it!
But, we really do enjoy spending time at the fabric store and
checking out the new spring fabrics, the clearance materials
and everything in between!
FYI - Walmart sometimes has great fabrics!
One of my sewing goals for the year is to make
curtains/drapes for the living room and maybe dining room too!
This doggie fabric above is adorable -- for bandanas maybe -
but definitely not the living room!
The drapes I have are fine, but really plain and dull and sooooo dreadfully
boring -- snoozefest!
I feel like I need something with a bit more oomph!
I really like this blue fabric above -- am kind of drawn to blue.
For a while, I had blue carpet in the dining room, but we discovered original hardwood floors were
under it, so we tore out the carpet. Come to think of it,
we currently have a large blue rug under the dining room table
that I just realized looks a lot like that fabric!
Another blue option! I like it, but am afraid I could go blind
or crazy or both sewing that up! That's busy!
Am afraid Maddy would call the flowery one above "old lady" fabric!
Hmmm -- may have to re-think blue as I really like this red, but
would need to see it in person to make sure it doesn't look orangey in real life!
We'll see if or when I get to this project.
I did read a tutorial from Miss Mustard Seed (do you read her?)
and it doesn't look too terribly difficult.
