Where have I been for the last month, you might ask? Actually, probably not, though. More likely, you haven't even noticed that I haven't posted for weeks.
But I'll tell you anyway! I've been making curtains! I had to move all the furniture out of my living room. More than once. I'm so glad that's behind me.
Have you ever made curtains? I don't usually make home furnishings but I have some accent pillows in my future, too. What's the biggest project you've ever made?
I love this fabric but it was a bit of a nightmare to work with. the pattern is actually sewn-on cording and the grainline was pretty wonky and I had to fudge a few things. I hate having to fudge things!
These curtains were one heck of a project but they sure are sexy! And we've finally been able to retire the bed sheet that was hanging in our window for the last year (and a half). In this last picture, in the top left corner you can kind of see the light fixture that made. Yeah. And I painted my walls a dark, dramatic grey. My bedroom is going to be so sexy.
Back to the actual curtains. I mostly used this tutorial and some videos from this Youtube channel. I didn't really find a lot of resources out there, though.
I can't believe they're finally done! I'm really excited to get back to sewing clothes!
