Also, Adrienne has inspired me to return to making duvet covers after seeing her beautiful duvet set. In the past I would purchase king size flat sheets and sew them together to make duvet covers to coordinate with curtains. Once I started sewing garments I veered away from home dec projects. I enjoyed working up the accent pillows and looking forward to getting back into home dec sewing. A week ago I purchased pillow forms from Joann's and plan to make some for my chiase.

Also, I have a few yards of faux leather that was initially earmarked for a handbag, but will be used for pillows for the livingroom sofa. With Spring approaching the room needs to be lightened up and also need to make new curtains for the livingrooom
The curtains in the livingroom have been washed and rotated several times, in that they were in a bedroom, then another bedroom and back to the livingroom... a change is definitely needed.
I remember in the past, it was hard to find bathroom window curtains to match shower curtains and if there was a coordinating curtain it was poly/nylon fabric. With that I started making my own coordinating bathroom sets and again would buy flat sheets and make bathroom curtains and shower curtains and use a shower liner under the shower curtains to keep the fabric from getting wet. Again, I have been in rotation mode since garment sewing and these curtains have made their way back to the bathroom too...lol

Sheesh, now that I think about it, the kitchen needs new curtains too.Years ago I'd purchased peel and stick frosting for the lower panes to avoid having to use bottom panels that were constanly in the way. Just having to use valances I never had any problems finding kitchen curtains, which were inexpensive. However, these valances have seen better days. I've never made valances and think I will try my hand at making them this year.
A questions for my dear bloggers what home dec projects do you enjoy!
