New curtains

Step one: Remove old curtains. Make cup of tea. Pace several minutes, with furrowed brow.

Make a pilgrimage to the fabric stash. Stand several minutes, with furrowed brow.

Select old sheet, possibly vintage, thrifted at Salvo a blue moon ago, for two dollars. Tear five inches off the top. Tear in half down the middle.

Finish torn edges with sewing machine. Hang. Step back.

Ahhh.

Totally awesome curtains!

Kristina said...

It's all the sheet, honest. All I did was finish edges.

I love fabrics that are beautiful without doing anything fussy with them.

The perks of getting to the thrift store early.

These are so shabby chic! Absolutely love. Great job!

Wish I wasn't so terrified of a sewing machine. I mean, seriously, I actually fear those things. The strings - coming in at all angles. Eek!
