Family and Sewing makes for a lovely day............

Today I spent the day with my lovely Niece, Kelly and her family.  Kelly is expecting her little boy in 3 weeks and asked me to make a roman blind for his bedroom.  As I've never made one before I did a certain amount of research and found this great blog with fantastic instructions 33shadesofgreen, there are some brilliant tutorials here.

Sewing machine in hand I arrived at Kelly's, first things first a lovely Latte made by James, Kelly's husband, then on with the sewing.  Was actually very easy and over the course of the day the blind took shape, here it is finished and hanging in the baby's room ready for his arrival.

The fabric used is John Lewis 'Men at Work', the blind is fully lined with white blackout fabric.

Kelly and James were very pleased and have asked me to make another for the window in Sophie's bathroom, again lined with blackout fabric, very much looking forward to making that one too.

Now just some 'cot tidy' bags to make to finish off.
