Weekend Warrior

I got motivated to finally dust off the old sewing machine this weekend.  It felt really good to get back at it and I owe it all to my mom for my (limited) skills.  It took a few tries to remember how to load the bobbin properly and, of course, I never measured anything, but I think they came out well.

I just turned over the edges, created a pocket at the top for the curtain rod, and then hemmed it once it was hung up.

Believe me, this is the easiest project you could sew (besides pillows) so if you were ever considering new drapes give it a go!


  1. They look SOOOOO good- I adore the subtle herringbone and that chest you have between them, gorgeous. Well done and happy Valentine's! xo

  2. They look sooo good. Love that mirror too!
    I hate sewing, wish I didn't but I do :o( but it sure inspires me when I see easy projects like this, thanks.
