Plethora of Craftiness

Since Reagan's new bed, I've been trying to keep myself busy with various sewing projects. Below you can see the new curtain I made for "Ben's Room." Maybe I shouldn't have started my sewing adventures with a roman shade but for a first attempt I'm satisfied. I just have to make the other one now... I got tired of just using a flat sheet as a bed skirt for our guest bed so I decided to take that same sheet and turn it into an actual bed skirt. This one I was quite proud of...okay, so there are some uneven parts. I'm okay with that - imperfection can be beautiful, right?!?
To match the new curtains I made, I wanted a few throw pillows for the couch in that room. Voila! Then I added my favorite personal touch - a monogram :)


And finally (for now), Towa so graciously gave me the bridesmaid's dress she wore in my wedding so I could turn it into a teddy bear to remember our day with. I've done this for some of the brides I was a 'maid for (Rory - I know - making yours has been on my to-do list for years) and decided to make one for myself too. Wanted to incorporate the sash that was on the dress but I'm not so sure the "belly-band" look was quite the right way to go...it will sit there though until I dream up a better look.

The final piece of the bear is to monogram one foot and put the wedding date on the other!!! I'd say I'm quite proud of this little guy!!!
