More CURTAINS, etc.

On the topic of curtains……

I made some similar curtains to THESE, in the baby room. (Which is really the babies room…..because both kiddos are in there.) So, just for another idea for anyone trying to decorate a nursery……….try making your own curtains. It’s especially nice to be able to add some color to your nursery when you are renting and can’t do much to the walls or the construction of your home. As I am. Sigh. One day we’ll have our own place…………. :o)


Still need some more color? Try using THIS tutorial to make a colorful star for the nursery.


Or try making some little coordinating curtain-like covers that hang at the bottom of the crib. This is extremely nice to hide the clutter that you shove under your baby’s crib. Or maybe you don’t have that problem like I do. Hmmm…


To make these, just connect squares/rectangles of fabric, with some narrow strips of fabric between them. Finish it off the same way as the curtain tutorial HERE and attach long pieces of ribbon to tie around the bars of your crib.


Want to throw their name up on the wall? Sew some fabric squares together and applique the letters of their name to the squares. Attach some twine to the back of each block and hang them up above their bed.


Ooops, I haven’t finished my little boy’s yet and he’s 6 months old now. Sorry buddy. I love you just the same.

    I really like your baby name banner, but I kinda need a little help. So you just sewed two squares together? Then how did you get the letters to come out so nice? Would you mind sending me info on how to did it, or a site where you have seen someone explaining it for dummies such as myself. :)

    hello?! Why didn’t I see this before I bought my kids wooden letters for like 3 bucks each? I still don’t get the applique the letter to the fabric you supposedly ‘slap’ together. More help please…
