Fern and I went out together and bought our fabric earlier this week, plus I used a few scrap bits I had lying about the house. The beauty of this artwork is that you can change your mind as often as you like and update the fabrics whenever the fancy strikes!
Because I don't know what I'm having, I tried to choose colours that might suit either a girl or boy. But once the baby is born, I'll probably add new colours to the mix, or perhaps even a printed silhouette! Or I could get creative and attempt the embroider the baby's name and birthdate etc... hmmm we'll see how much spare time I have once I have two
Because I have bigger plans for this wall, I have just tacked the screens up temporarily to show you what they came out like. Next week, I'm going to attempt to paint the wall (in stripes! Bright turquoise ones!) and then put the artworks up more permanently, once I've played around with the layout a bit. I'm also contemplating adding a few more to the mix.
Sorry, the pic hasn't come out v big but I have a slightly-whingy Fern at my feet and no time to play around with it! What do you think?
ps. If anyone has any fail-safe tips for painting a stripy wall.... or has seen any instructions floating about on the web, would you please share? x
