My wonderfully talented sewing mother came down this weekend for her birthday party.
We had the best time. But I selfishly put her to work..
My curtains in the living-room needed a revamp of color scheme.
So I showed her all the fabulous fabrics
that she was sure
could never possibly go together,
and she measured (twice and cut once)
and whipped them out for me.
I love LOVE love them...
I found the most perfect piece of vintage turquoise floral fabric at a flea market for 25 cents.
It was an old table cloth, and was a wonderful texture and weight.
Added some of my other favorite stuff... AND wham...
I will take a picture of the finished product this week to post.
I am trying my best to get mother to join me in a custom curtain/pillow making business.
Of course she would get the YUCK end of that deal since I just want to have the ideas, and she do the sewing... haha
Mix up something that doesn't go together, and just see how fabulous it turns out to be.
