fabric-y spring goodness

Just popping in to show off a couple of projects I finished in the last week.

First up is a curtain I made for the bathroom.

The mister refuses to part with our old skull & crossbones shower curtain. I think a patchwork curtain certainly cutes it up a bit. The orange & red match the other bathroom accessories.

Second, I’ve been wanting to make a wreath for our front door and I finally got around to it last weekend.

Using this semi-tutorial from lindamade I turned an old lime green floral sheet into an adorable wreath for our front door. It still needed something, so that’s where the little birdie, complete with wings, came in. Yellow rickrack for hanging. I think it would look nice with a 3-dimensional bird, so I’m contemplating making one of the birds from spool’s bird mobile to hang out in the wreath.

    what a great way to compromise for your shower curtain, and the wreath came out great. i like the little birdie, but the spool ones are totally addictive to make, too.

    krista and i made the spool birds to decorate our christmas tree, and we love them. i keep meaning to make more and produce a mobile, but i havent quite gotten there yet. maybe soon, though, as the weather gets nicer and we can go for walks to find sticks.

    nice save on the curtain.
