I was at the breaking point in this project thinking that I'd never find the right fabric for Vaughn's curtains.
Then BAM! It smacked me right in the face.
* White background? Check!
* Bright colors? Check!
* Would match her pink duvet? Check!
* Something that didn't look too old for a 4 year olds room? CHECK!
What pushed me over the edge? The butterflies! Homegirl loves butterflies. (And mermaids. But I'll find a way to add something "fishy" somewhere else in her room.)

It only came in 36" bolts, meaning if I wanted to use it for curtains I would have to seam it together to make a 54" panel. Not out of the question, just extra work.
I didn't buy any at the store and decided to go home and consult with Google first. I quickly found an online store that carried it in the larger bolts but the pictures on the site made the background look more cream colored than white. I spoke with someone from the site and they confirmed it was an 'ivory' background. I went back and forth then just finally ordered it, hoping that what they were calling 'ivory' was what I was calling 'white'.
The fabric is exactly what I wanted. Now, it's time to make the
donuts curtains! Then, decide what on earth to do with the dresser and nightstand! It's been a battle (still very much not done) and deserves a post of its very own. I'm not sure if I'm loving the yellow. More on that later!
