Finally, it’s summer. I’m no longer freezing and the sun comes up early and goes down late. Only problem is the sun has fooled the boys into thinking they can stay up later than their usual bedtime.
Naps can be especially difficult when the sun is beating through the window.
No problem. Get some opaque, dark colored fabric and make curtains. It’s a simple enough project, even for beginners. You can get as creative as you want with it. The result: the kids will be soothed into sleep by the darkness…then you can get some rest, too.
Check these out.
I hand-stitched these on to make my curtains more interesting. This is the part that took the longest.
Have fun! It really is worth it!
