I have been afraid of my moms old (1969!) sewing machine for as long as I've had it (um, that'd be about 15 years!).
Finally, last week I was determined to overcome it, I stayed up all night, googled every sewing machine manual kenmore has (lost my manual, can't find the model number) and I finally figured it out! (after rethreading it about a million times and breaking 2 needles) .
For my 6 year old daughters room I used a vintage table cloth I found for $5, here it is before-
And as curtains-
They're not so uneven in real life, just slightly uneven
Then being such an expert I went to a fabric store and bought fabric!
(Imagine that!) My twins got curtains today, I should have done a closeup of the fabric it's really cute.
We just moved so we haven't had a chance to paint yet, I'm doing pink in the flowered room, and lime in the twins room.
I'm so proud of myself! I know they are very simple, but I think they look great!
I have big plans to make lots and lots of stuff!
