I started trying to get this project done over a month ago, but life sure gets in the way of fun sometimes. However, I have finally started the long overdue drape project.
This is what the window in the breakfastroom has looked like. When we moved in I made these panels and since we were still trying to rearrange furniture, I just shirred them on a rod and tied them back.
This fabric I've had for over 2 yrs, and finally am going to use it as a header for the drapes. Love, love, love plaid.
TA-DA!!! This is much better don't you think?
The fabric was only $3 yd at my favorite discount fabric store and the trim I found on line for $2.29 yd. I cut a piece of fabric the length that I wanted and added the fringe to the bottom. I sewed the top of the fabric to the back top of the drape, then pulled the sides around and hand stitched them in place. I didn't sew the bottom of the panel to the drapes. I wanted the rod to be larger and more decorative, so I lucked out and found some clearance ones at Ross, this one was $3.99.
I am thrilled with the change and it looks so much more updated.
Now, just three more windows in the ajoining familyroom and it will all look better.
Thanks so much for stopping by, I always appreciate your visits. Now I am off to sew some more.
