Wash, Brush, Flush

Have you entered my "Weekend Wow Me Party" yet? It's going on all weekend until Sunday midnight! Make sure to put in your links and you could be featured on Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My bathroom wall is ugly. And bare. And needs something on it to not look so depressing. Bathrooms should not be ugly. Or bare. Or depressing.

Sad, sad bare ugly depressing bathroom wall. (ignore the washcloth...)

So while taking a bubble bath the idea struck me (well maybe that was the shampoo falling on my head) that I should make a wall hanging for the bathroom.


It was cuter in my head than what it actually turned into. But not altogether unpleasant methinks!


Happy bathroom wall! (again, ignore the washcloth!) Now my wall isn't quite so lonely or bored or depressed. And it's cuter!

I decided to do a rag quilt type wall hanging. Because lets face it, bathrooms aren't fancy... so I figured this little guy should be a little sloppy looking. And he turned out just perfect.


Again, not as cute as when it was in my head, but it will do. Have you noticed how it's kind of leaning a little. Yeah I'm going to pretend I did that on purpose, but I guess it kind of fits...

H! Stopping by from the weekend blog hops and I am now a new follower of your blog thru GFC. Hey, at least you can make stuff, which is more than I can say for myself! I have no imagination so I leave it to people like you to make this world pretty! Also, I agree with the other post. It is your blog and you can say what you want! I do. I would love a follow back on GFC when you get a chance. I hope your weekend goes without any events so you won't have to vent!! Take care.

Simple, but it does make a difference to the otherwise empty, boring wall. Good job!

I love this. I was thinking it would be super cool as a rug and to have your kid stand on each section of it as they do that. Maybe my kid would actually floss her teeth that way. Very cool!

I like it! It gave me some great ideas on what to do with a few scraps of fabric that I have laying around. I don't do much sewing, but sometimes I wish I did. :)

The bathroom wall hanging adds character to your bathroom, and also a timely reminder for the family. Love it.
