Last night we got a call from a friend of my daughter. She had found an old doll house at the thrift store that was the perfect gift for her 5 year old niece. It needed curtains.
She is a scrapbooker, so she was going to re-paper the walls and stopped by to drop off the one set of old dirty curtains that were in it.
We went through the fabric stash and the girls found some that would match the paper.
With a bit of help from my daughter,
we got them done in a couple of hours, start to finish.
As a side note, I did fix the wonky seams, I just didn't get a picture. We ran them over and the doll house was cleaned, wall papered and had a few pieces of furniture and new drapes. It is all ready for a little girl to dream.
My daughter and I found this at the bottom of a bag of fabric. I remember buying it about 17 years ago, when she was 3, and then promptly losing it. I think I need an intervention on fabric hoarding...LOL!
I ironed it for about an hour and cut it out.
I found some batting scraps that were the perfect size and pinned it up.
I just did a quick stitch around the pictures and then the outside edge of the pages. DD is so in love with the Rag Quilt texture, she wanted me to leave the page edges open.
Sew it together and square up the pages and...
It's cute under the tree and she says it is going in her cedar chest after Christmas.
She is very good at reminding me that it is the littlest things that can mean the most.
