more drapes and a rabbit trail
I was so tickled with my copy cat drapes that I made another pair. I had to. Cause I robbed Peter to pay Paul and used my kitchen drapes for my family room. That nekked kitchen window was begging to be beautified.
I had a single tab top panel that I found at Goodwill. No earthly idea why I bought a single panel. Anyway, I only needed narrow panels for the kitchen window so I cut it in half and seamed the sides back up. Problem solved.
The next problem with the tab top panels was that they were 25 inches too short for the window.
When I was in Nashville for the Garth Brooks concert I popped in to JoAnn’s fabrics. How I love that store. How I wish we had that store here in Canada.
Here’s a photo of Jake and I on Music Row before the concert…don’t think I shared these on here. What is UP with my bangs? Look how tall my 16 year old is! It seems like only yesterday I was tying his shoes. 😦
WHERE WAS I? Oh yeah, I bought a half a yard of fabric that I LOVED while I was there. I figured I’d use it to reupholster some chair pads. (This is showing up really dark, but it is a beautiful peacock blue.)
Well ding ding ding…the lightbulb came on. Add the pretty fabric to the bottom of the plain tab top panels.
I did. And I used the leftover fabric to add a band at the top. I used every single bit of that fabric.
Don’t mind the wrinkles…I’m hoping they will fall out eventually. 😉
I love them cause I sewed them with my own two hands. They make me happy.
So happy that I’m about to utter three words that I never thought would ever come out of my mouth.
Are you ready?
Seriously. I’m hooked.
