We end this week's mini-series by looking at grey colour schemes for children's bedrooms. This 'cool' colour bridges the gap between white and black and can make a real statement when highlighted by a bright accent， such as green， neon yellow， electric blue or hot pink. Once again white walls and flooring are used to create a contemporary styled bedroomunique gifts for men， however， you could also use white as the base colour for a more traditional style and swap white flooring for wooden or even fitted carpets.
Use a variety of grey shades to create a monochromatic look – soft greys are perfect for pinks and favour girls while gun metal grey is the ideal partner for lime green or electric blue – favouring boys. Use plain bedding，？duvet cover sets，？grey curtain fabric？or curtains in grey to keep the contemporary feel， you can highlights of the accent colour for large floor rugs and perhaps bed cushions. Try not to use too much of your accent colour otherwise you run the risk of it becoming too dominant.linen sheets
Pops or splashes of colour is chic and trendy， too much is overkill! As we seen throughout this week there are many different styles and colour schemes to use in children's bedrooms without having to use the colours which are typically associated with male and female genders. You also need to allow growing children to voice their opinions if you want them to be content with the colour of their room.
Don't forget children's curtains are fine for youngsters， but teenagers will much prefer cheap curtains which fashionably chic than 'lose face' with their friends! Likewise with bedding， let your child have a say and they'll thank you for it. Storage is also a necessity rather than a luxury – especially if you want to try and encourage your child to have some sort of order and tidiness in their bedroom.
Blackout roller blinds are ideal window dressing choices for children of all ages， and can be use as the sole window dressing， which in many ways gives a more masculine feel to the room， whereas blinds and curtain combinations lean more towards a femininity. With some fabulous colour choices for bedding， soft furnishings and widow dressings it's easy to create stunning children's bedrooms without having to spend a small fortune – which is great news for any parent!
In November we showed you how a ruffle attachment works, tucking little pleats into the fabric just before the needle stitches them in place. So what’s the different between a gathering foot and a ruffle? Right away you’ll notice that the gathering foot it just one piece, whereas the ruffle has many different pieces working together to pleat the fabric, and adjustments for setting the depth and frequency of the tucks. A gathering foot, such as BERNINA Gathering Foot #16, doesn’t have moving parts. But look closely and you’ll see that the sole of this foot doesn’t rest evenly on the feed dog. This causes the fabric to feed unevenly, forming gathers as it passes under the foot and is stitched by the needle. The amount of gathering is adjusted by changing the stitch length and needle tension, and is also affected by the weight and stiffness of the fabric. You may have noticed that the sole of the gathering foot has two layers; this is for stitching ruffles directly to a flat piece of fabric. Place the fabric to be gathered under the foot as usual, face up, and place the flat piece face down on top, through the slot. The fabric against the feed dog gathers, and the fabric in the slot stays flat. This foot is especially good for making ruffles for garments and heirloom sewing projects.
Rebekah from A Bit of Sunshine is here to share this ADORABLE Pony Silhouette Hoodie Tutorial with us! And since I predict that horses are the next hot animal trend (watch out foxes!) I’m especially excited. So grab your plain boring hoodie with zero appliqued ponies and prepare to make it fabulous.
Hello fellow sewing-enthusiasts! I am so excited to share this quilt-a-long project with you here at WeAllSew. I learned to make quilts from my mom when I was growing up. About fifteen years ago I began doing it in earnest and took classes to broaden my skills. I have since worked in a quilt shop where I taught beginning quilting classes. I still love to teach quilting basics?on my blog, Diary of a Quilter, which I have been writing for over five years now.
