Finished? maybe evolving is a better term

O.K. I should admit that I am never finished with a project.

Since the "I finished everything" post, I have painted the bench in the craft room and found a place for only about half of the stash, and made a cushion for the newly painted bench.


I also made a second curtain for our two-windowed room.


We have had one curtain for about 3 months, and it feels good to have the windows match.


I made the curtains and the bench seat cover from a twin-sized duvet cover set that I got in the as-is section at IKEA.

There is the perfect amount of fabric.


I used the duvet cover itself for the curtains, I cut off the seams, finished the edges and added a rod pocket.

Pillowcases from IKEA are one long piece of fabric folded in half and sewn up the sides, so I had plenty of fabric for the seat cover.

I even had enough to bind the edges.

I used flannel on the underside so the cushion wouldn't slip around and I am very happy with the results.

I guess I have to make a pledge now that I will stop calling any project finished.

I also should take the time to iron, forgive the wrinkles...

Have a productive Monday,

Jess

It looks so peaceful and pretty, Jess. I love your choice of fabric. What a cozy, comfy corner.
