rainbow curtains

After I made my son's curtains I started browsing around for fabric for my daughter's room.  This turned out to be impossible because my daughter is super particular.  Originally we had agreed to use a Clover Sunshine print but when I measured her window I realized that it is 70+ inches wide, I needed something wider than 44".

Harper and I browsed dozens of websites to try to find a rainbow-y home decor fabric but she didn't like any of them.  And then we found Michael Miller's Mighty Stripe.  It is actually quilting cotton, but it is 57" wide.
And it is glorious.  The stripes are 2.75" wide and they are bright and rainbow-y which is perfect for my rainbow loving 5 year old.

I used the same tutorial this time and I used blackout fabric for the lining.  We get quite a bit of sun here in San Diego and it's nice to be able to shut it out when we need to :)

And it matches her very rainbow-y rug.
We hung them up this morning while she was at school, I can't wait to go pick her up this afternoon!

  2. I wish I could say we get quite a bit of sun here at the moment but that would be untrue :-(

  3. I think this is a brilliant choice - stripes are timeless and the rainbow colours are so fun for a little girl. I think she's going to be thrilled to come home to these curtains!

  8. My daughter declared last night that she wants us to paint her room rainbow colours - so perhaps we could compromise with rainbow curtains! They are gorgeous!

  15. WHERE did you get that rug?!?!? We're doing a rainbow-themed nursery and, in planning to use the Mighty Stripes for curtains and bumper, stumbled across your blog (love, BTW). That rug is PHENOMENAL!!!
