Finally, after almost 7 months of living in this house and poor Halie living with her windows looking like this...
I finally got her curtains made. They make such a huge difference, dontcha think? They just add to the soft, feminine look of the room and they provide a nice color balance to all the pink and white.
It took me this long because I was hoping the fabric would go on a 50% off sale at Hobby Lobby. Y'all know by now....I'm cheap. But every time I was there to check it was always 30% off. So finally I just bit the bullet and used a 40% coupon. (If you didn't know this already, you can forgo the sale price and use your coupon on the regular price of the item.)
I paid about $12 for the fabric, and I got the ribbon 50% off so I paid $8 for 4 rolls of that. So, about $10 per curtain. My sewing skills are beginner level at best, and these certainly wouldn't win any sewing contests, but I'm kinda proud of 'em. I think they look purdy cute.
I even took the extra step of lining them! Aren't I so professional? I just used an old sheet I had in storage.
Once, again, purely for your viewing pleasure....
Now....two more projects and I can consider her room D-O-N-E!
