Hurrah! I finally finished my bedroom curtains. It’s like a Christmas miracle a few months early. I had purchased fabric from Ikea a few months ago and I after a couple days of sewing and cutting my bedroom has new green and white drapes. I think I learned my lesson about measuring with the pillow situation so I was extra careful with these babies.
I hemmed all the edges at about 1/2″ and then I measured the top part of the curtains for the rod pocket at almost 4″ so if I ever changed curtain rods they would still work.
Before the pillow incident I hadn’t even used this sewing machine in probably four years so I was pretty impressed with how straight my stitch was.
Just look at that fine craftsmanship. Not too bad for just getting back in the sewing saddle.
So I kept on sewing. Trust me, it took longer than I thought for just a few straight stitches. It was five yards of fabric total so it took a lot of thread and a lot of pinning and I didn’t stick myself with a straight pin once!
Mostly I wanted to post this picture to show off my cool ring. Thanks Target!
I’d say it took me about 4-6 hours total but I did have a fair amount of hangups, namely the fact that my automatic bobbin winder broke so I had to wind my own. What a pain. I also stopped a few times to give my fingers (and eyes) a break.
Read to see the finished product? I thought so. Drumroll please….
I know it’s not the best photo and lighting but trust me, I will post more pictures when the whole room is finished. I can’t wait to change that ugly tan paint color to a nice medium grey. I think that will really help the room, right now the bright green looks super weird against a warm tan.
So one step down and like a million more to go. I can’t wait until this master re-do is done! Soon. Very soon.
