Mission Accomplished Part II



I've put in some serious sewing time this week,
making new window treatments for
my entry, living room and dining room.


I usually contain my sewing projects to my sewing room,
but dealing with the yardage needed for curtain making,
forced me to move to the dining room table
for the cutting portion of this job.


I purchased thirteen yards of the blue graphic print and...


...six yards of the floral
(not to mention, seven yards of lining).
That much fabric needs to breathe...


It's always a little scary for me to make the first cut.
Did I measure right?
Did I calculate right?
Have I thought it through well enough?


But, cut I did.
The bottom cafes and their linings all ready to be sewn.


I'm using these nifty little rings with hooks


for the top valances.


I'm making a very simple valance.
It will be made up of a series of squares,
the two fabrics, sewn together,
then folded diagonally with
two inches of the back fabric creating a boarder.


Can't wait to show you what they look like hanging!
