here. I may sew another throw pillow a little smaller, just because this one turned out to be too similar in size to the blue sham, and I think a smaller one will look better. The pillow inserts are from Joann Fabrics.
I made the bedskirt in the matching Calico Corner's fabric. It was really easy actually. I had an old ruffly one on there, and I just cut the ruffles off, keeping the fabric portion that went between the mattress and the box spring. I then placed that fabric scrap from the old bedskirt back on top of the box spring, leaving the mattress off, and pinned the check fabric on to the old bedskirt scrap, creating pleats at the corners. That way, I could adjust the check fabric while it was hanging there. It didn't take long and it looks custom.
The blue quilt and sham are from Pottery Barn, found here, in Blue Dusk. The color is actually much softer in person and goes really well with the curtains.
I really love how the curtains turned out. The fabric is Robert Allen Les Fauves Grasslands. It is a really bright, happy fabric. I bought it on sale from The Fabric Corner in Arlington. I sewed these in a more casual style than the drapes in my living room. In my living room, I followed Janell's excellent tutorial for fully lined drapes (found here). For this room, I went with something a little more casual and less time intensive. These drapes are unlined. I based the curtains on the instructions in the new Design Sponge at Home book. Although I did sew a rod pocket (just in case I want to use it down the line), I bought drapery hooks and rings and used those to hang the drapes on the rod (all hooks, rings and rods were from Joanns - got to love the coupons!).
If I could sew these again, I would add a fabric interfacing like Janell advises in her tutorial to the top hem - it would add a lot of structure to the top and make it easier to attach the drapery hooks without poking through the front of the drape by accident! Since I was going for a more casual look though, these look fine. My advice is to pick a fun fabric, and no one will notice the imperfections!
