Oh wow! Love the nurseries ladies! Are the wall art owls (both photos) painted or stickers?

I am eager to start the kids room. They will be sharing so I need a revamp. Any excuse really haha. Must finish my own bedroom first, otherwise it'll stay half painted forever

They are stickers! There is no way I would have been able to paint that haha. Got them at Home Depot

Bunting is really easy, I did mine the hard way, as I think they hang better. Cut multiple triangles and take one in your chosen fabric and one in backing fabricc. Pin them togetgerwith the surface you want showing on the inside. Sew down the two long sides and reverse it, you may need to snip some of the excess near the seam at the point to get it neat when you poke it out. Repeat and then pin and sew onto a binding strip. Which is like a ribbon where you lay the bunting on and fold the other half over the top.
I've also seen it done where you just use a single fabric triangle and cut with pinking shears to stop fraying so no sewing.

I have a sewing machine which was given to me second hand. It's never been out but i think I'm going to have to try and figure it out and get my mum to give me a lesson!

I would love to do my own soft furnishings. Duvet covers and curtains mainly. I think I need to invest in a seeing machine haha.
I wouldn't mind making a mobile either.
I'm a part time artist (part time because I'm lazy/can't over do it or I become uninspired haha), but I work with paint and coals and such. No fabric. I need to experiment!

Cushions are dead easy, you need slightly smaller than the cushion size.
Duvet covers also easy.
Curtains I had help from mil.
