This includes her new crib sheet made from one of my favorite prints from Chez Moi's Sophie (and it goes with the Chenille quilt I just finished). I used Angela's crib sheet tutorial, and it worked really well -- I might shorten the length a little when I make another (because she obviously needs more crib sheets). ;)
The best part about this crib sheet -- I was worried that the print was a little too busy for a crib sheet, and I should have gone with something more basic, but she loves to look at the flowers when she wakes up. No tears if Mommy is a little slow!
I wanted a patchwork wall in Scarlet's room, but I decided I'd use the best feature of the room -- the bay windows -- and make patchwork panel curtains instead.
I used, again, the prettiest, girliest, sweetsiest fabrics I could (most of them repeats from this WIP), and I've got one of them done (well, except for the hem at the bottom).
I'm really pleased, but haven't figured out how to capture them well in a photo. I was really nervous (I cut over 140 10" squares!), but I do love how they turned out (at least in person). All three panels are pieced, and I need to line and band. The only thing I think I'd change is I wish I'd have done black-out liner, but I already had this stuff on hand, and didn't want to spend any more money.
The other project I'm working on for her room are some pretty fabric poofs inspired by this mobile I saw on etsy. I've got one poof done!
I love it. I will post a tutorial as part of Angela's Sew-Less Summer series (or you can find them on pinterest).
I have deliberated and deliberated over Scarlet's room -- it has so many incongruent elements (most of them leftover from Steiger's room) I'm trying to tie together in to something fresh, soft, sweet, and pretty... in the end, I had to just go with what I know and love -- fabric, of course. ;) I'll re-paint the walls when I get the other features finished, to create a great back drop. I'm just hoping it all works. :)
