We're newlyweds, first house, etc. etc. so I was super excited to decorate. I picked Amy Butler's French Wallpaper to do the pillows and the top loops of the curtains. The actual curtains are Amy Butler's solid in linen. (I think it's linen, it might be celery.) Anyway, on to the pics!





I apologize for the bad pics, I couldn't seem to get enough light in here.  Tongue

Great idea to use the pillow fabric for the curtain loops.  Constructive criticism here...you need a curtain loop at both edges of each side of the curtain panel-4 more loops per window.  This will allow the curtains to hang better and cover the window more completely. You could add them now if you have more fabric.

Good luck to you and enjoy decorating your nest!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

I realized that after I had them hung up. Unfortunately, I used all of the French wallpaper fabric.  Sad
