I found the blue home decor fabric in the remnant area on sale! It was the exact measurement I needed to make to big circles and a handle. The white corduroy fabric I had in my stash that I've used on this pillow and this vest.
This tutorial shows how to make a rug out of felt. Do you think that would work and last awhile?
There are also no blinds on the windows, but there are drapery rods provided, so making curtains have been my first projects. Hopefully I can show one of them to you tomorrow!
