We (and by that I mean “I”) finally chose fabrics for the kitchen! I am so excited. The lemon pattern on the far left is for the kitchen curtains. I think it ties in with our yellow pear-shaped placemats beautifully. The striped pattern is to cover the kitchen chair seats. Originially we planned to match the seats to the curtain, but I was afriad it would be too matchy-matchy, so I chose patterns that compliment instead. The pattern on the far right is for I-have-no-idea what. I am currently obsessed with anything and everything related to birds, and so I fell in love with it and had to have it. I think I’ll probably end up using it to make throw pillows for the family room, but we’ll see.

Now. Here is the conundrum. I have never actually made curtains before, have never worked with a pattern, don’t know the first thing about sewing, and while I can run a sewing machine, I can’t do it in a straight line. I have sewn together pillow covers, but what with my lack of sewing skillz and inability to sew in a straight line, they were the World’s Wonkiest Pillow covers and have since been ripped apart at the seams and set aside for use in another project one day in the future. So any suggestions, tips, ideas, you happen to have for me when it comes to these curtains and new pillow covers will be MUCH appreciated. ¬†Gracias!
