First an ugly stage, then ending with a happy-dance finale.
The first of this little venture occurred when I was in a hurry and my creativity was low. The inlaws were coming for their first visit to our home here in CO and I needed to get curtains up ASAP.
I feel like all my free time (what’s that?) has been spent on curtain-creating since we’ve been here.
Lots of windows = lots of curatains, but lots of windows = lots of light during the winter, so I won’t complain.
I bought this fabric at the fabric district in Paris. It was a very fun day to say the least. I had no idea what I was going to do with this fabric, but I knew it had to come live with me.
I especially couldn’t walk away as it was a mere 5€, or @ $7 per yard. Woohoo!
So, here was the initial creation. Ewwww.
SEW not creative and so not me.
A few days ago I had another fun guest visiting, so I decided to get these babies in shabby-shape.
I had a contrasting fabric that I purchased at the same time, so I cut a chunk of that to go with it.
I then purchased this awesome foo-foo trim from Hobby Lobby for almost nothing – I think the entire spool was half-off, so it was maybe $1.50. Nice.
I married the two fabrics together. They were thrilled.
Then topped the seam off with the foo-foo trim (as a wedding gift).
Here’s how they turned out…
I still need to get a nice chunky rod for them to go on (adding more Frenchy flair of course), but I’m in a non-spending mode this week, so this rod will do for now.
I’m also in the midst of working on a pennant banner (bunting thingy?) for a show I’m doing this coming week. I LOVE doing outdoor markets & shows so I’m uber excited – but I guess that’s another post!
Totally random, but I want to mention that Raven Brook (one of my favorite Etsy mamas) has her domestic diva gloves on super sale this week.
I have two pairs of these from her and I LOVE them, so I thought I’d pass the info on to all you domestic divas out there.
Stay cool, keep creating, and have a blessed weekend!
Here's who we're playing with this weekend. Come play with us!
