Euro Shams with Flange {Peek of the Girls' Room}

If you've followed along for awhile, you know that my goal for the month of February was to finish decorating the girls' bedroom.  February has obviously come and gone, and here we are one week away from April, and I'm still not finished!  I figured that I didn't need to wait until everything was complete, though, to give you some glimpses of what I've been working on.  One project was euro sized pillows for each of the girls' beds.

Over a year ago, before we even moved into our home, I ordered some fabric samples online.  The one I liked best for the girls' room was $14.98/yard, and I just couldn't bear to spend that much at the time.  So, I've been keeping my eye out for a year looking for something that might be comparable.  In February, I took a trip to Hobby Lobby, planning to purchase a fabric a friend had shown me, and what did I find?  Lo, and behold, the same fabric I had wanted last year, only it was $8.99/yard, plus I had a 40% off coupon!!  I was able to purchase the fabric I had wanted all along for just a fraction of the cost!

The second helpful point in this process was a blog post that I found giving a tutorial on how to make a euro sham with flange, exactly what I wanted to do for their room!  You can find the tutorial I used, here,  on Brittany's blog, Coleman Chronicles.  Her tutorial is great and it was nice to just follow directions instead of having to figure everything out on my own!

I still have some work to do on their room, especially with hanging things on the walls, but I'm loving the fabric and paint, and the girls like it, too, which is wonderful!

Stay tuned for more updates on their room's progress!
