A few late nights, a few stolen naptimes, and a lot of unwanted help from the cat who thinks she can sew, and they’re done.
Here’s one more view, from the far corner where we have an office set up.
If they don’t look like that much to you, don’t feel bad. We’re not “dress up the windows with enough fabric to make it look like they have shoulder pads” aesthetes. We like a little, but not too much. So it’s been a good fit for what we call our style.
These shots really don’t do justice to the dimension of the fabric, so here’s an extreme close-up…
There’s one little trick I used when assembling the panels for the tall windows. The decorative rods were designed to work with rings that have clips on them. Which is great for quick and easy installation, but I didn’t want the clip part showing. So I picked up some rings and sewed them on the rod pocket. See?
This way, if we ever wanted to re-use the panels or change out the rod we’ve got a few more options at our disposal without drastically changing the construction.
So, there. Curtains made. Ahead of deadline.
What’s next? Well, I did just pick up a little something on Craigslist that needs some TLC. We’ll see…
