    DGD's Curtains...

    DD asked me to make new curtains for the girls' rooms. The 3 yr old's was easy--bright striped primary colours. But the 6 yr old wanted pink and purple flowers--oh dear!! I could not find any fabric that would work within my budget. Soooo...a piece of cream backing fabric, a bunch of bright coloured scraps from the bin, some Heat 'n Bond, and a few days to play with my brand new Pfaff 5.0...Voila!

    I am sure she is delighted. Came out very lovely. What a great design you came up with on the fly.

    Beautiful. I'm sure DGD loved them.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.
