Once upon a time, Kristena won a yard of fabric from Sew, Mama, Sew. With this yard of fabric, Kristena promised to spiffy up her very 1950s (but not in a cool way) bathroom. So Kristena chose a fabric that coordinated with said pink & burgundy bathroom. One day, the magical (and also very free) yard of fabric arrived at Kristena’s doorstep. She tore her package open as quickly as her swollen, pregnant fingers would allow her and photographed her new fabric in various locations throughout her house.
Months passed and nothing happened. Kristena wondered if she had chosen the wrong fabric for her taste.
Then one day at the start of Fall, Kristena grew weary of seeing her yard of free fabric collecting dust. She cut, cut, and cut. And then she arranged several flowery octagons and diamonds on her plain white bathroom curtains.
No matter how she arranged them, they just didn’t look right.
So finally, Kristena sewed one octagon right in the middle. And she liked it.
But it needed something.
So she added two diamonds on either side of the octagon.
Then Kristena hung the curtain (only one panel this time), stood back, and admired her bathroom’s super-quick face-lift. She thought to herself, all decorating should be this easy!
And Kristena, her freshly decorated curtain, and her weird retro-contemporary bathroom lived happily ever after. Or something like that. :)
P.S. I have a lot of this fabric leftover, as you can imagine. Would anyone like what’s left? Leave a comment, and we’ll have a random drawing!
