My Curtain

I know curtains are easy, but I wanted to post this one that I made for the patio door in my bedroom because I LOVE the fabric. I got it at Mood Fabrics in NYC and it doesn't really go with anything else in my bedroom, but I don't care - I just love it.

Mothers Day Nightgown

This is my first project using a knit fabric. I made a nightgown for my Mother for Mothers Day. I wish I had a better picture, but I finished it last night and took a quick picture before wrapping it and sending it out early this morning. I used Simplicity 3696 and made a short version of View A with 3/4 sleeves. I used a WONDERFUL cotton knit fabric from Mood Fabrics in NYC. When I tried the nightgown on it felt so soft and cool that I wanted to keep it! I have some extra fabric so I'm definitely going to make some kind of night shirt for myself. Overall working with knit fabric was an easy, 'no fray' experience that I will repeat!
