A very long time ago, probably at least a year and a half ago, I painted a pretend window for the chicks' closet. The doors are removed, and they use the bottom half of the closet as a play area. For a long time it was Ninna's "office," but as Bojey became old enough to play, and the office somehow lost its appeal, we moved the doll bunk beds and doll high chair in there, and it became more of a "house" area.
I had intended to sew curtains for the fake window the following week, but instead, I sewed them today, about 18 months later. But nonetheless, they're done! And here's the window, in all its curtained glory:
Ninna, who, like her mother, cannot wait for spring, remarked that "it's always summer in that world!" If only it could be so on this side of that window.
If there were a tutorial, it would look like this:
1. Using your severe lack of technical skill, paint a window frame and behind it, an outdoor scene.
2. Eighteen months later, lay on the couch during nap time and send your 4 1/2 year old into the other room to search through your fabric stash for the right curtain fabric, hoping you are buying yourself a 10 minute nap. Be greatly disappointed when, exactly 27.5 seconds later, she emerges proudly carrying her top three choices.
3. Sew a simple curtain.
Aaaaaaaaaand there you have it. The chicks seem to be very excited about it. They closed the curtain before bedtime. I guess it was letting too much sun in...
