Powder Room Pennants - WASH!!

While at the craft store the other day I fell in love with these papers from LilyBee.  I love how they look like patchwork.  (If you look over my last few posts you'll see that I am REALLY into patchwork these days!)

Right then and there I knew it was time to change the scrapbook paper in the the 12x12 frames that hang in my powder room.  These frames change seasonally.  I had a grey and yellow theme going there for awhile - but it's about time for a spring-time freshen up!

So in went the papers, but the room needed more.  So off to my fabric stash I went and I found these:

Perfect match!  It creeped my hubby out that I could go to the basement and come up with just what I needed.  He wonders what I hide down there!!

With a snip, snip of my scissors - 5 fabric pennants.

Now they need a theme.  Perhaps a slogan.  Hmm....what do my kids need to be reminded to do CONSTANTLY???  

Red felt from my stash turned into free-cut letters and a cute little heart.  
They need something more......
A little hand-stitching and they were perfect!

At this point my sewing machine joined in the fun. Some twine and some zigzag stitch and these babies were ready to hang!

Man.  It's hard to get a good photograph with the lights on - but without them it's way too dark in my windowless powder room!!

A few more touches to add to the colour palette:

 A green towel:

A green and white bath rug:
And some red posies on top of the medicine cabinet.  

I LOVE this little ZING of colour! 

A perfect powder room -- until I change it again in a month or so!!

  6. That's so cute, Bronwyn! I don't think I've ever seen a pennant used in a bathroom before. I totally have that teal fabric and made some covered buttons with it last summer. Is your bathroom yellow or a yellow-y green? It looks a bit like the colour of our guest room.

  7. So happy looking....very lovely, great job! S.T.
