"Vroom Vroom."

Hello,

I think that $2.00 is a good price to pay for a brand new piece of children's curtain fabric. After a wash to make sure the colours didn't run I hemmed the top and bottom and left the selvages in place. It was time to embellish the fabric.


 With some words like Vroom Vroom, Toot, Honk etc.


A couple of hours later I have the perfect play mat for Jacob to play on, or could it be a super hero cape or maybe even the top of a cubby house. The possibilities are endless.

I love using up fabric like this, I wonder what the original purchaser was going to do with it or had she overestimated the curtain length by an extra metre. I will never know but I am glad to have used it up.

Happy days.
Bev C

That turned out fantastic Bev, I love how you have embellished it. As soon as I saw it my first thought was a play mat. Yes I think you got a bargain at $2.00.

Ha, what a great idea to buy children's curtain fabric and turn it into a play mat! So adorable. You're always full of clever ideas in repurposing materials.

Yes $2 is a bargain for that cute fabric. Sadly my Salvo is now stopping selling fabric. I've got so many lovely pieces of fabric from there!
