I really could not be more pleased with how this project came out - thanks to Fiona, disasters were averted and a bunch of quilting fabric and flannel became a nice new window covering for our little Stell. I used a nice web tutorial from here http://www.purlbee.com/lovely-lined-curtains/, but had to amend it a little with Fi's help. As with beading, I am learning that even when in a rush, it is better to rip out messed up work than try to hide it later. Sigh.
Here is the window, during the day. The yellow band glows a little in the sun and looks like a nightlight at dusk!
My dad painted a picture to the right of the window, as he does for all new Petersen kids. The cow loosely is based on a cool pop up book my mom found at the library.
