so remember the wonderful scenes in the sound of music where all the children are romping around the country side in those matching clothes maria made from the curtians? when I was younger I thought this was hysterical - after all who makes clothing from curtians!?!
So far I haven't been able to bring my self to make clothing from curtains but I did make pillows and chair covers from a set of sheets I fell in love with! It was an inexpensive way for me to cover this square stools I have been itching to change. Underneath they are fuchusia faux suede and covered with grimpy handprints from a two year old. I know your thinking why the heck did you buy fuchusia faux suede to begin with!?!
simple. $5. They were $5 and I needed something to sit on in Kate's room next to her toddler bed. I bought three and I have loved them. (except the fuchasia faux suede part) Kate has used them to stand on while washing dishes or helping cook. I have used them as extra seating, footrests, and coffee table. They slide across the floor which means they have also been race cars.
Now they are slighly more stylish. I can wash and iron them! I manage to get a few pillows out of the left over fabric and still have the bottom sheet left over... oh and I am recovering my ironing board!
I considered using thebottom sheet to make kate a cute summer dress but my husband drew the line. He said Carrie, I don't think it would be wise to have people come over and see that we dress our child to match the furniture. Thats when I laughed and rememebered Maria and her curtians.
