My friend is redoing her room and wants camo items.  I am a bit lost on what to make her.  Message boards and throw pillows are about it...

Any ideas?

I found several patterns that have to do with bedroom items.  There are a couple comforter/pillow sets, as well as curtains and floor pillows.  There is also a pattern for shoe trees and other organizational items. 
There's also a pattern for camo wall mural sort of thing. Smiley

I had my room done in camo at one point. I had a roman shade type thing going with camo fabric and for the 'sheer curtain' under it, I hung some netting I found at a party store in the beach section. It was an army green color and could be used for either beach stuff or army style stuff. My room was specifically themed around the show M*A*S*H.

If you've got scraps of fabric left after doing the bedding/message board type stuff, you can cover storage shoeboxes in it or even sew your own boxes/baskets using heavy interfacing. Cute storage boxes seem to always be appreciated and even guys use them. The same techniques can also be used to cover pencil cups and such too. Don't forget about the bitty details like that in the room. Sure, the pillows and comforters get noticed first, but it's in the details.

Maybe an over the door shoe rack? A hanging sweater storage thingy?
