finished my front door sewing project!

do you remember this fabric? i bought it in december and wrote a post about it, about how i was planning on using it for our front door. finally i found the time to sew it, and with the help of my mom i've got the new curtain up since yesterday!





although i have less fabric left than i thought i would (yeah, as a sewing beginner i calculated wrongly...) i do have some leftover that i will be able to make something with. i think it needs to be something for the hallway, something in the vicinity of the front door so it's obvious i'm using the same fabric and am trying to create some kind of a theme.

my front entrance is still not the way i'd like it to be, so i'll just show you an excerpt for now. but the flower and bird fabric definitely brightens it up, makes the door look friendlier and more inviting. so, all in all, i'm very happy with the outcome of this project!

it's adorable, i love it. that fabric is perfect, maybe you could put the extra fabric on embroidery hoops and hang them up opposite to the door? you could stitch a little on the fabric as well or add small black buttons to make it look more interesting!

This is a great idea! I need to do something similar for our front door, especially with winter coming up. Thanks for the inspiration!

I have that same fabric and was wondering what to use it for yesterday! I've been such a delinquent sewer lately...
I love how you used it!

Congratulations! This looks so nice on your entrance door, as the fabric seems to be perfect for spring and summer alike.
(....and in fall and winter it brightens up your days anyway!)
