The girls got a new trundle bed a couple months ago and with it they got some new bedding. While I loved the old bedding, I was kind of ready for a change. It had been in Piper’s room since she was born and I wanted something with more color. I got inspired one day when I saw this cute quilt at TJ Maxx for $30. I bought it and the transformation began. I wanted to tie in the blue that was in the quilt and the sheets, but nothing else in their room was blue. So, I had a plan to go to the fabric store, get some cute fabric in blue tones and tie them around a wreath of some kind. I’ve mentioned that I love fabric, but not sewing, so this was my kind of project. I was at Michael’s one day and they had this big round wreath-like thing in the clearance. When I went to check the price the lady said 39cents! Sweet, I’ll take it!
I got a quarter of a yard of 4 different fabrics and started tying strips of fabric onto the circle (Jenny’s Fabrics in Fountain Valley has lots of fabric at the back of the store for really great prices). I would go slightly bigger if I were to do it again, so that the ties were a bit longer, but oh well. With some of the leftover fabric I made a bow and ta-dah! It was finished! Well, almost. It’s hanging in their room, but I want to hang something from the bow down to the middle. I haven’t decided what yet, a small picture frame, wooden letters of their initials, cute felt flowers, something like that.
I really am missing my camera. I don’t have a fancy one or anything like that, but I lost the charger and have been taking pictures with the phone and/or computer. So, sorry for the poor quality.
