Last year I went to town decorating her room. Lots of pillows were made, as well as other embellishments. I loved personalizing it for our sweet girl. This year I've added ballet accents.
So here's a tour...Let me start by saying this room is TINY. Some people's closets are bigger than our girl's room. But that's okay, because she's little, too.
As you enter the room, you see one wall has a window and two built-in closets made by the original homeowner. They're great for storage. However when we upgraded our girl's crib to a vintage iron twin bed (scored on craigslist!), we realized the 2nd closet's door must be removed. We wouldn't be able to open it with the bed there, so I replaced the door with lace curtains.

I found 3 lovely old ballet prints at a local flea market this weekend, and propped them on her shelf along with some vintage ballet slippers:
They coordinate with the ballet art I made on the opposite wall:

Several years ago, I purchased a shower curtain from HomeGoods (or TJ Maxx) because I loved the pattern on the cotton fabric. I held onto it until I had a perfect room to showcase this fabric. I was able to use the entire shower curtain to make this pillow with pom-pom trim...

...and the fabric behind this chicken-wired cabinet door.
One shower curtain goes a long way!!!
This vintage doll crib was a Brimfield find from two years ago. I made cushions to keep her dolls comfy:
Over our little girl's door hangs fancy dresses for play, and her handmade tote for ballet class:
I had fun making these pillows to cozy up on. They lie atop her basket of dress-up fun...
Our little girl loves the room, and I know she loves her quilt!
Hope you enjoyed the tour. Come back again to visit!
I'll be linking this post with Beverly's Pink Saturday, too.
