Sewing...

The main colors of the room will be light blue, navy, gold, red and white. The MAIN material are a solid navy and a blue/gold/white plaid. The finished products are the curtains and bedskirt. Here are the detail shots (curtain and bedskirt respectively):


















Here is the other material that will be used for the bumper, throw pillow and "E-T-H-A-N" letters for the wall:














Here are some action shots of mom (and Mallory) sewing:

oooohhh...I'm impressed! I would love to do stuff like that and I'm ALWAYS shopping for cute fabric.

One question: How are you going to do the letters for Ethan's name???

Dana, I bought some 1/4" thick poster board that I'm going to use as the base for the letters. I'm planning on using an iron-on adhesive to put a solid piece of material on a square cut-out of the poster board for each letter (I don't know what size yet, though). Then, I'll use the iron on to put navy letters on each square. I'm not sure how I'm going to hang the letters yet, but it shouldn't take much. I'll post pics of the finished product whenever my mom sends me the left over material after she's done.

I love the shot of Mallory looking through the sewing machine.
