I finished our kitchen curtains or valances or what have you! Yay! I bought this fabric back in October when we moved in this house, and finally...project complete. I got this fabric from Fabric.com for some ridiculous cheap price like $2.50 a yard. It is really nice and heavy, and I really like all the different colors in the stripes. I originally wanted to make all our curtains. Psshh. It wasn't going to happen. I made these and a valance for the girls' room. Good enough. So I went on a curtain rampage both buying and sewing last week, and now five months later all our rooms have curtains. They really do make such a big difference for a room!
It is also incredibly difficult I found to take good pictures of curtains. I used Simplicity 4497 for these. They really are just simple long valances folded up every 18" inches or so to give the folded look. Very easy.
Also in the shop I have the three new Anna Maria Horner patterns! The ziz zag dress really is so pretty!
