Oh, The Things I Can Do...

...with a little paint, a sewing machine, and a shower curtain!

These were my inspiration pieces.
A shower curtain that I am in love with the colors, 
and a few throw rugs that coordinate well with it.
 From one shower curtain I made,
a chair cushion...
 Two valances...
 With the original top I used a ribbon
 and wove it through the shower hook holes. 
Then I tied it to little metal flower fobs.

This valance on this window is just hung with a tension rod. 
It's under a cornice box & because it's not really seen at the top it's just kinda plain Jane. 
This piece was cut from the bottom of the shower curtain.

Lastly I made a new ironing board cover to match.
I still have a few small pieces if fabric left that I'm sure I can put to use before this room is done. 
I'm about half way finished painting.
More pictures will follow when everything is complete.
Oh...and while I was sewing these things together tonight I also made a dust ruffle for "baby girl no name" that is due next month.
Now I just need to get it out to her mom so she can finish up decorating baby girls nursery!

Looks FABULOUS! :o) Can't wait to see the finished product!
Is the dust ruffle easy to make? Have you ever made bumper pads before? Are they easy? I want/need to make both for my baby girl, too. Someday! :o)
