I'm so lucky to have a son-in-law who's mother is a fabric lover, just like me! Mary creates wonderful bags like this:

I used the directions from Sew4Home as a guideline for these projects. I hadn't sewn lined floor length drapes in a long time (maybe never!) so it took a little planning and plotting. But I was very happy with the result. Brita installed all the grommets and Ben installed the curtain rods. The drapes plus the blinds do a good job of darkening the room. The bedskirt has pleats in it but this crib kind of hides that, so I could have saved some time and eliminated the pleats. Nonetheless, it gives a nice finished look to the crib. I'm glad I had the chance to help with my sewing.
