Well it’s finally finished! This week I was busy sewing the curtains and pillows for my daughter’s playroom. Last week I put up a tutorial showing how I made her cushion cover on the window seat. I will post two more tutorials this week, one showing how I did the curtains and the other showing how I made the bolster pillow in the middle of the bench.
I purchased all of my coordinating fabric at Hancock Fabrics. They currently have their indoor/outdoor fabrics on sale for $6 a yard. There is an added bonus that the indoor outdoor fabric is stain resistant since this is going in the playroom.
Well, what do you think? I like how it turned out. I sewed the curtains so that as she gets older I can remove the polka-dot valance if she outgrows it. My daughter just turned 9, so I picked the fabrics with the hope that the room can transition with her as she grows up. It can go from a playroom to a lounge room that she can hang out with her friends as she gets older.
This is just the first step of many in this room. I’ve largely ignored her playroom because it was so messy and disorganized I couldn’t stand to be in there for long periods of time. But now I think I’ll be going in to admire her window seat! I wish I had one. I want to curl up in there with a good book.
Here’s some more pics of the window seat. I’ll be updating this post with the tutorials, hopefully tomorrow.
