Home Dec Sewing

Home dec sewing is always rewarding, but not always the most exciting kind of sewing to me. I've done curtains at my house and my mom's:

My daughter's room:
My mom's laundry room

My mom's living room (she bought the lace panels and I made the rest)

My newly updated living room (made 3 of these)

I'm seeing a theme in my home dec choices - at least two fabrics need to be used! I also did some pillows to match the valances with some leftover fabric:

BTW - on both of the new living room projects, I used this gorgeous cording that was a BEAST to sew - even with an invisible zipper foot b/c the darn plastic piece of junk kept coming apart. One invaluable thing I learned was how to weave the cut ends of cording so it would all work together seamlessly (or at least seamlessly enough). I highly recommend Sewing Edges and Corners as a reference in a project like this.
