Childrens Curtains

It is new curtain time for Miss S who has been waking up at the crack of dawn for weeks now. We need heavy 100% block out with as much block out as possible, but I don't want to make them myself.  I just find curtains so stressful, all those unforgiving straight lines.

We have been traipsing everywhere looking for something great.... nothing, anywhere. I have however found this on-line fabric store (very local to us bayside people.) Fabric Traders, they have exactly the fabrics I want curtains in.  The down side is that I will have to make them. So this is what I am thinking...

Ozborne Girly Pink
West Indies
Suzani Candy Pink
Ozborne Girly Pink I think is the way to go, Ms S likes Suzani the most, but how pretty are the colours in the West Indies print.  Thoughts?


  1. They are all very pretty but, like you, I like the West Indies print best. I suspect it might have the longest life too if you are going to sew the curtains yourself. My girl both loved pink until they were about 6 or 7 at which point they suddenly rejected it altogether. Talking to friends, that seems to be a very common story!

  2. Good suggestion, it would be nice to get more than a few years out of them.

  3. Oooh that's a hard choice, they are all gorgeous. I think I like the West Indies one best though, the green with the accents of pink and purple look amazing! I think it would last for a long time too because it isn't too girly or pink so she won't outgrow it or get sick of it too fast!
