Collect paint samples from a store, such as Lowes or Wal-Mart. Paint the walls one soft color and go 1 or 2 shades darker on the trim. Use lots of fabric on curtains and pillows that are on the opposite side of the color wheel as the wall paint, I.e. Blue paint, brown pillows. Add some accessories like paintings, lamp shades in animal print, etc. I would stay away from a brand, such as High School Musical, iCarly, etc... Happy decorating!

1. How to Hem Sheer or Lightweight Fabrics

Hello again from Laura at CraftyHour! I am here today to share some of my favourite techniques for working with sheer and lightweight fabrics. The first experience I ever had sewing any sheer fabrics was when I made my wedding dress 8 years ago. There was ample opportunity to learn - the dress had three overskirts of organza to seam and hem! More recently I made my daughter a flower girl dress with an organza overlay and used some similar techniques to get a beautiful finish. The dress with more photos and details is blogged here. So to begin with, let's talk about the sheer variety of fabrics out there (see what I did there?!). As I mentioned, the two dresses above were made with organza, a woven, very light, sheer fabric. Organza ravels easily and has a lot of body, not much drape. I used polyester organza, but it is also available in silk and nylon. Chiffon is another type of fabric that is woven, generally less transparent and quite a bit more drapey than organza. Both of these are often used to make formal wear. Another fabric that I love to use is voile, a gauzy, floaty fabric that is great for blouses, tunics, and scarves. Cotton voile, in particular, is ideal for summer garments. Similar in hand to voile is cotton silk, which I used to make this yoked tunic (details blogged here). Voile, cotton silk, cotton batiste, and rayon challis are fabrics more suited to daily garments, as they are less transparent than true sheers and drape well. These are just some of the sheer and lightweight fabrics available. When cutting such lightweight fabrics, it's important to lay them out straight and square. Because they are less stable, these fabrics can shift around and cause a lot of off-grain moments when cutting! For the yellow organza I used for flower girl dress, I pinned the selvages together to keep the yardage from slipping around. I also used pattern weights and a rotary cutter and mat instead of pins and scissors. To finish hems and seams in a sheer or lightweight fabric, it's best to make them as narrow and tidy as possible. A narrow rolled hem is ideal, using either a serger or my preferred method, outlined below. Run a line of basting stitches about 1/4 from where you want your final hem to be. Then using that line of stitching to fold crisply, press the raw edge up. Next, using a basting stitch again, sew at about 1/8 from the folded edge. Carefully use a pair of scissors to trim the raw edge away very close to your second line of stitching. Fold once again, enclosing the stitched-down raw edge, and press. Using a regular stitch length, stitch very close to the inside fold as your final line of stitching. Remove any basting stitches that might show, and press once more - your delicate hem is completed! A serged rolled hem is what I used for the organza overlay on the yellow flower girl dress. Check your serger manual for the exact method for a narrow hem or rolled hem. Basically, you will need to disengage the stitch finger, increasing the lower looper tension, and decreasing the upper looper tension, with the left needle removed and only three threads. You will need to play on scraps with this till you get the settings right. The same basic idea of stitching, folding, stitching, and trimming is used to make the tiny seams, as can be seen in this closeup of my wedding dress. You will stitch the seam, right sides together, using about 1/4 smaller of a seam allowance than called for. Then press the seam to one side, very close to the stitching, and stitch again. Trim close to the second stitching line, then fold once more to enclose the raw edge and stitch one final time. Tiny seam finished!

2. Digital Foil Printed Fabric

Foil printed fabric is to print some designs with the foil on the texture for sparkling impact. There are twos sort of foil printing strategy. In the principal strategy, the example is printed by a foil/move cement on the texture, and afterward squeezed with foil paper by hot steel roller. The weight is by and large 5-6 bar on printed parcel and at 190-degree Celsius on intertwining machine for 8-12 seconds. In foil printing, the nature of the cement is significant. For the most part it is comprised of acrylic co-polymer with water as diluent. Less expensive characteristics show exceptionally poor stretch, loss of non-abrasiveness and smoothness after five washes and look dissimilar to the first print. The foil ought not stick to restored inks under strain. Regularly a tangling specialist is added to abstain from staying. In the subsequent technique, printing is done on the foil paper first, and after that foil is pushed on the texture with hot steel roller or iron.

3. Uses for Quilting Fabric?

Yes, I would and have used it for exactly the reason you said -- the patterns. I made my girl's dresses (when they were younger and did not care about 'home-made'). But I still quilt and prefer the fabrics from actual quilt shops because the quality is better than, say Joann's. So while they may seem coarser right off the bolt, they will soften considerably after the first washing since they are 100% cotton. You could always ask to see the brushed cotton that's sold in quilt shops if you want to use it for pajamas. Now that fabric is nice to the touch
