Lost in the Sea of Fabric

I have made quite a few valances in my life, but never full panel drapes. I decided I wanted to do it for the nursery to give it a more custom look. My Mom was going to help with the bumpers, but after lots of research on the web, she talked me into we decided to go with the breathable bumpers. They are really the only proven safe bumpers. They are a mesh and are okay to look at, but not as precious as the homemade ones of course. However, I will feel safe knowing she is in there and can breathe if she were to get stuck in a strange position. Anyway, all that to say I need to do everything I can to make several other CUTE focal features in the room.

I was swimming in fabric while making these. They weren't really difficult to make, but challenging just because I was lost in all that yardage. I was sewing and praying I was sewing on the right side because there was no way I was going to be ripping these long seams. I ended up pretty proud of myself. The lining on one panel was on the wrong side, but like I said I was not about to start ripping out because I would still be ripping until this baby arrives.

Oh, and my chair came last week. I love it...it is so soft and comfy and I have a good feeling I will probably be sleeping in it some nights. Here are the boys. They love the chair too. Beck called to me the other day and said, "Mommy, come look at us." That is always kind of a scary thing to hear, but he was practicing rocking Briggs-who had just woken from his nap. Love that bed head. Sweet boys!

  6. I might have to hire you out for some custom curtains. I can't find anything for our ridiculously tall windows. Ugh!

    And I'm SO jealous of your plush chair. When my cheapo glider kicks the bucket at the same time your fabulous one disappears, it's just a coincidence. ;)

  8. I'm just now catching up but I love the curtains you did - you are talented honey! And the chair...you will be so proud you got it! I got one for Karleigh when she was little and that chair has had more use in her room than anything else (minus her bed). hehe She loves to sit in it and read during her quite time now.
