Once upon a time I was strolling through Target, looking for bedding for my apartment...and I happened upon the Bella Wisteria bedroom set. I don't know if any of y'all have seen this, but it's so pretty! AND...the blue/lavendar coverlet & shams are the exact
fabric that was used to make the bodice of 1 of my ballet costumes! Except the costume fabric has this pretty floral embroidery in it.
There is a picture of the costume in the "Butterfly Wings" post under completed clothing projects. I'll get a better photo of the fabric this weekend when I go home!
Anyway, needless to say, I've now decided to design a fairy princess room that I would have loved when I was 8, & that I'd love even more now! I have some fabric left over from the costume: about 1 to 1.5 yards of the bodice fabric and quite a few scraps of the blue/lavendar chiffon that went into the skirt.
I might make a pillow or 2, but I know there are even cooler things I can do with this fabric, and with the rest of the room. Oh, I also want to hang the wings from the ceiling...or put them on the wall somehow. I don't know, but I'm so excited about this room! Yay!
So what do y'all think? Any ideas would be much
appreciated. BTW, I can't sew. (Minor detail, right?
) But I probably won't start this project until this summer, & by that time I'm determined to know how.
