I made the bedskirt and a throw pillow to match!
The pillow started out as a ‘reverse applique idea which technically it is however, I got lazy and decided to machine applique it in. I then took some #5 Perle cotton and stitched around the outside.
I also felt frisky enough to make my bedskirt. I
ripped out the stitches unsewed the previous bedskirt from the piece that goes under the mattress the night before so it saved me a little time. I then cut out my fabric, hemmed the edges and sewed it all back together.
I had plans to make matching curtains but wanted to add a little eyelet lace fabric in the mix just give it a femine touch. I made one panel and decided I’m not sure if it really is what I want now. I think I want long curtains however I don’t have enough fabric for that and unfortunately Joann’s is out of this specific fabric. What to do? I think I will wait and ponder this for a bit. Any suggestions or ideas would be awesome! ?
I managed to also get another set of burp clothes made up for my etsy shop. My “for sale” list has diminished to just a few things. I think that’s a good thing though. I whipped up a red and white chevron cloth to go along with a couple of Dr Seuss clothes.
I like the way they compliment each other!
I am working this weekend so I don’t think I will get much more done on the sewing front any time soon but I hope you all have a pleasant weekend full of sewing fun!
