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!
