The Butterfly Room

My son's family recently moved into a new home (new to them).  Papa told each girl that he would paint their rooms before they moved in.  Mema (that's me) took the two GDs shopping at Hobby Lobby for fabric.  Youngest decided she wanted butterflies as the theme for her room.  Each girl was to pick out fabric for Mema to make something and one item for their room.  Here is the fabric for the Butterfly room.

 
This is what we made from the fabric.
 

 
 
Here is the item she selected that day.
 
The next week we selected paint color and craft project for the rooms.  She selected a beautiful pink color - Champagne Elegance at Home Depot.  Her craft project was this caterpillar made from scrapbook papers from Michael's.  The color of wall if off in the photo but you can still see the lovely caterpillar. 
 
 
We also painted her letters from her old room and replaced a flower with a butterfly on the R. 
 
 
She has been back to Hobby Lobby with her mom and purchased a flower wall hanging that matches the butterfly.  She decided to keep the original sheers in her room.  They are lime green and purple.  She is still adding the finishing touches.  I will post a photo of the completed room at a later date.  Next up the Tween Bedroom.

Hi Pam! I just love the fabrics! The combination of stripes and butterfly print is wonderful. They would make a lovely quilt! The pillowcase is just perfect. I'm looking forward to seeing the tween room.
