Ever since I opened this book:
and saw those bags that you see on the right hand side on the bottom, I knew that they would be perfect for Amelia Claire & Avonlea's room.
The book has really cute idea's in the colors that I adore.... pinks especially. The idea behind the bags is that you are to hang them in your entrance way to hold all those odds and ends that don't quite have a home......
in our house, we need them to be garbage bag sized!
But, for my girls.... I think they're the perfect size!
So, I chose these fabrics:
Their bedroom walls are turquoise and their furniture is white and pink. These colors should perk those walls up and add some fun to the room! I plan to hang these up higher than usual, right inside their door. *I want these to hold all of their toys that seem to get scattered and stepped. And, the higher than usual is so that they need to ask to get them down, which I'm hoping will cut down on the constant clutter and mayhem in that crazy room.
*(Like Disney figures, My Little Ponies, Littlest Pet Shop, etc...)
The only problem I ran into were the directions! Is it just me? After cutting out all of the fabric and linings..... I just couldn't wrap my brain around how she explained it all. I tried to sew one set up and totaly bombed it. My Mom says these are German and were translated, perhaps they were. Or more than likely, it's just me.
So, after Avonlea wakes from her MUCH NEEDED SECOND NAP, I'll venture back out and give it a try MY WAY.... and see where I end up!
I shall report on the progress!
