And it turned out absolutely precious!
At more than one point during this project I started thinking it would look nuts, but it turned out exactly how I envisioned it. Now, I have another shutter/bar door/swingie deal and I may just have to make another one, but for now.... I must finish some other projects. Like the fact that I just tackled painting my metal bistro set for my balcony and I have to make some cushions for it! Sewing projects freak me out, but I'll give it a shot!
