Room Decorating

This summer I am moving into a house with some roommates, which means I get to decorate my room! So from the start I knew I wanted to do as much as I could myself. So far I know I want my overall color to be blue and I've even bought a couple bedspread patterns.  It all started with this cute closet organization pattern I got thats from the 1970's
I think I would maybe make the laundry bag and a couple hangers but what I really loved as the idea of coordinating the closet and lining the shelves with fabric hanging off, it makes it look so nice and put together!

This week I've been searching for bedspread patterns and here's what I've bought
I couldn't pass up this beautiful 1940 quilted bedspread! One of my friends has one just like this in a dusty pink satin that was her grandmothers and I've always loved it so much. I don't think I'll use it for my bedspread because my fabric is cotton and I'm not sure it would look very pretty, especially since the fabric isn't a solid color. When I find some dusty pink fabric and free time though, I want to make this up just to have as an extra blanket. You can never have too many blankets! 
This pattern is a lot more modern (probably from the 90's? )but I really love the look of the first little half canopy in pink. I couldn't fit a full canopy nor would I really want too ( I feel like it would make it too frilly) but I think one of these short ones will be perfect if I can make it!

Finally I bought these too. It's a ton of options and way more than I need, but I really have no idea how I want to do the comforter so I  figured I'd just buy a couple so I could study the instructions and how each goes together and pick from there. 

Finally my fabric! This photo has a yellowish tint to it so it's a more crisp blue than shown.

    1. Thanks! I've never made any bedding before, so hopefully it will work out well!
