Cute little houses

Posted on

I saw those little houses on the retromama blog before Xmas and fell in love with them! They were way too cute and I had to make them but was wondering how I could put them in showcase in my house all year long…

And then, I made a bunting to go in Rachel’s room. And I had my Ah Ha moment. How about a curtain? A simple but cute curtain?!

I first did those beautiful houses and had fun hand embroidering and coming up with way to decorate them 🙂 They are made of reclaimed and upcycled materials as usual and stuffed with new fiberfill. I used the same fabrics (or should I say clothes??!) as the bunting (forgot to take pics of this one, so coming later).

And because of Michelle at Keyka Lou who had the awesome idea of setting sewing week goals (along with a giveaway at the end of each week! woooot!) I completed the curtain last week!

I’m really happy with it and so is Rachel! But If I was going to make another one I’ll double the length of the window that time (just did 1 1/2 and it’s not ruffly enough to my taste;) I bought the polka dot fabric and the white one too. I could resist Fushia and Polka dot together!

I’ve been putting things off lately…   Like sewing for myself, that is still on the to do list. But The goal setting is really helping me get on track and really DO stuff!  I was kind of jealous of Michelle for having such a bright idea 😉 Thanks Michelle!!
