I like to do all sorts of crafting from sewing and quilting to a little bit of knitting (mostly scarves and pot holders) to scrapbooking and other random art forms. By no means am I an expert at any of these hobbies, but I do have fun and it’s always gratifying to see the end result. One thing I’ve learned is that it’s always better to have the right crafting supplies for your project!

My latest mini-project was to add some color to my 5 year old daughter’s bedroom. I’d really like to paint it (it was freshly painted blue when we bought the house last year and I just can’t justify me painting over such a professional looking new paint job…plus, I’m certain my daughter will choose neon pink or zebra stripes for her walls. I’d like to let her get a little bit older so she can maybe choose something a little bit more subtle? Right now her favorite thing in the world is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. See what I mean about her design tastes?

When we moved into our home, my daughter’s bedroom had heavy, almost upholstered feeling drapes that reached all the way to the floor. I knew that wasn’t going to work, so we took them down with the intent to shop for something more appropriate. Thing is, curtains aren’t cheap and it’s tough to find the right fabrics and style to compliment a room. So, I ended up leaving it like this for the last year. Her room looks¬†pretty washed out. Although, she does have pretty cool TMNT bed linens. Please note, there is no sign of a top sheet. My kids don’t manage flat sheets well and they all have just their fitted sheet and comforters on their beds. What’s a girl to do with all these unused flat sheets that come in the “comforter in a bag” sets? Make curtains, of couse.

Literally, it took me about an hour to cut the flat sheet in half and then sew each outside and bottom seams. The process was made much more simple with Wonder Clips from Evergreen Supply. These colorful little clips work just like pins, but without pricking my fingers or leaving pin holes in the fabric! Each clip keeps the fabric lined up straight so I can sew right along all the way to the presser foot on my sewing machine.

The Wonder Clips from Evergreen Supply come in a convenient container in a set of 50pc. Although not limited to just sewing, these clips sit right beside my sewing machine and I reach for these over my cactus-like pin cushion every time! I know I’ll be using these clips for all sorts of other craft projects too!

    These would be great to have on hand for my next sewing project! I love that you made sheets into curtains that matched her room decor. I did that for my oldest daughter’s room when she was a toddler and into Barney.
