Here is a picture of some curtains and a blind I made for my son's room. Both were made in a Soft Furnishing course I took at the local college. I was lucky enough to have Amanda Walker (a published designer and very talented lady!) as my tutor. The course was fantastic and I made a lot of friends with similar craft hobbies.
Having totally stuffed my lounge with cushions, I felt confident enough to make more challenging items. I intend to make Max a duvet set in the same fabrics eventually but that has taken a back seat for now!
