I made curtains!

Here is to another long weekend! I was having trouble putting these on facebook, so I am posting them here for those who wish to see=).
I made some curtains!
It takes pretty good measuring skills to get these perfect. I am proud of myself!
It is fun to take material and make something cool for your house.
I made four panels for the two windows in our bedroom. I used three different fabrics that I loved and got for a great deal at joann fabric. I loved the print, but I didn't want to overwhelm the windows and make them too busy, so I got this awesome, heavy greenish/yellow fabric for the top. The middle strip is a little smaller and it is the floral print, and the bottom is the smallest strip in a deep purple that I love!
Here are some close ups. I love this graphic floral. It is a good mix between modern and country, which I love. When the light comes through, the curtains look really cool, because the floral is a little lighter material than the other two so it lets moer lgiht through.

You can tell in the first picture why I now want to paint the walls! They totally don't 'GO'. But we have hated our wall color since we moved in so this is a good excuse to go ahead and paint!
Tomorrow, I am going to make some more stuff for etsy!

They are so pretty! Good job! Does the color in this picture show the top color more yellow than the actual material? I remember more green. Hope my Koley-Moley feels better. Love you!

Aunt Donna said...

Love your curtains. So cute, you little "artsy-craftsy" girl. :) I'm glad you described the colors. It looks like (on my computer) like yellow and grey, and I recently learned to like that color combination as well. But purple and yellow -- so cute!! So what color are you thinking about for the wall color?

Do you want to come and "interior decorate" our house? I need HELP!!!
