Yvonne sent me the fabulous ariadne at Home kinderen, which is full of inspiring images - don't speak the language - of interior design for kids rooms. I also found a great deal of softie inspiration: Check out the dog (top right), the robot softie on the bed (top right) and those super soft looking kittens (bottom)! I'm not working on any softies right now. Well I made a cat out of some Moomin fabric (more on that in another post), for my 10::10 project to show you Sunday, but nothing else. See I'm making pillows. A LOT of pillows. I just bought 12 pillows, that I have to dress! We made a veeery long bed for our son, that I want to make 5 large pillows for. We also got ourselves a tiny alcove, where we could just barely squeeze our bed into. I thrifted me a wonderful quilt for it, but I need some pillows to lean up against, while I read. That's 3 more. Then I got 3 for my daughters newly painted, very pink bed. It used to be her big brothers bed. She sleeps in his bed though, it's long enough for both of them. That was 11 pillows. The last one is for a wooden toy box with a lid, in my sons room. We have some left over foam mattress and I never made the box seat that comfortable, so I'll be upholstering that as well. Then there is the wallpaper I never did in there. Why is that so intimidating? Geez the To-Do list is long. I did finish 2 pillows. Two. Luckily when my daughter starts Kindergarten June 1, I'll have a few hours a day to get things DONE.
All washed and ironed. Ready to sew.
Top 3 are for bedroom/alcove.
Flowers for the girl.
Solids for the boy.
Linen for the back of all of them.
