New Fabric in my Kitchen

I love my little red and aqua kitchen, but every once in a while, I like to switch it all out.  The easiest way for me to do that is with fabric.  I had this Orla Kiely tablecloth from Target, but it was too big.  So, I hemmed it into a square to fit our breakfast table.  I'll probably use the remaining fabric to make a pillow or a purse or an apron or... any ideas? 


I also stitched up some new cafe curtains.  The great part about having small ring clips is that the sewing part is exceedingly easy - more hemming.  I bought the fabric from Via's Place on Etsy.  Here is a before photo:



Here's a closer look:


And the vintage wire market basket on the table is in my Etsy shop.  Until it sells, I thought it would be sweet on my table filled with little white pumpkins.  Yes - they're left over from the fall, but that's how I roll.

That fabric looks fantastic on your table, and your cafe curtains are super cute! It's brilliant how a little change-around keeps a place interesting.

I love the combo of all the patterns. Maybe make a little make up bag with the leftovers?
