Polka-dot Curtains

IMG_5877

Since I’m a little obsessed with pink at the moment I figured I might as well show you Sophie’s curtains.  I bought this fabric to make curtains…it’s a really nice weight and at $7.48 a yard it cost less than buying them (I used 5 yards).  I measured from rod to floor and added 12" for each panel.

I have a Polka-dot obsession…big time.

Pin It!

Oh dear! I have heard that polka dot thing is contagious too! Could you come finish my curtains, they have been sitting here way too long! They are cut and ready to be sewn :)

You are so funny! Sophie's room is darling. I think of you whenever I pass the little donkeys down the road. Did you ever make the Cream Sticks?

Stinkin' cute dottie curtains!

Jessie K said...

So cute! My girls are obsessed with pink, too! And polka dots! And stripes! (Depends on the day, I guess!)

I need curtains in my room, but I need 9 yards of fabric!! I want to cover the whole wall since the window was waaay off center and our bed is parallel with that wall. So I'm trying to decide if it's worth buying that much fabric or what I should do.

Too cute!! And there is no such thing as too much polka dot...at least in my happy little world!

Little Sophie's curtains are so sweet! And I adore her wreath from your previous post. :o)
Aren't polka dots such happy little things? Your sweater is too cute!
Have a wonderful week. Trish xo

Cute, cute, cute....Love those dots! That's one lucky baby

Linda said...

How cute! Seeing your gray sweater with the white dots makes me think you should paint big white dots on a portion of her wall! Maybe wrapped around a corner or something.
Just thinking........

I have that amazing "LOVE" print in a gray frame in our living room. I adore it! Precious! Oooohh...and as for polka dots. I'm a polka dot, stripes and chevron nut. It's bad.

They are wonderful curtains, just perfect for a little girl and a big girl too. Dots are fun, like Mother like Daughter.

Valerie said...

My daughter's room has polka dot curtains, crib skirt, & changing pad cover. You can never have too many polka dots! I love the wall color too by the way!

Melody said...

I bought the same sweater. Love it! The curtains are really cute!

Cathy said...

Sophie's room is so cute!!

Love the tiny feet in the picture!!! Her room is so darn cute. I have four daughters and never got sick of pink! I do miss doing hair (they are 26-16) although it would get a little hectic before church when they were little. The hubs would comb their hair out and then I would do whatever I was going to do with it. Then it was finding all the pairs of dressy shoes at the last minute.... I miss it!

Glad you are thoroughly enjoying your time with your family! It does go fast.

I LOVE Sophie's room! The curtains are perfect for it. Love pink and dots!

Enjoy your little bundle of joy.

Kelsey said...

Cute!! I often notice an excessive amount of stripes in our clothing. Polka dots are much cuter.

Stacy Olson said...

Same here. I loves me some polka dots! Very cute room.

I think I need that sweater!

robin chapa said...

When my son was learning to talk he called them "polkanuts". I've been obsessed with them, too, ever since.

Gayle said...

Love the curtains! As an aside, do you remember what paint color you used for the nursery walls? It's gorgeous and I'm having a hard time picking out colors for our new house right now. Thanks!

Mimi said...

I love Sophie's room and the polka dot curtains are absolutely perfect!!! I gotta make some for our bathroom! Thanks for sharing.

this is so pretty, I love the room, and your sweater! I just ordered some polka dot fabric to make my daughter's curtains. I have been trying to decide for a few months what to do for her curtains -thanks for the inspiration!

I love these! I am thinking about making curtains for my daughters room. Do you feel that this fabric blocks the light? Also, it looks like the link doesn't work anymore, I was wondering if you could provide a new link? I love the nursery!!

Allison said...

Lindsay I couldn't find your email...but I do think these block the light a bit...except I like that during nap times and in the early morning. :) They are from fabric.com and I don't see the fabric there anymore..sorry!

LindsayR said...

Thanks for getting back to me! Bummer that they disco'd the fabric, I'll have to search for something similiar. I really like how they look! :)
