I’m back…. this time with another show and tell of handmade curtains I had made for my daughter’s room recently.
The inspiration for these came from this cool sheer fabric I found at either Goodwill or thrift store probably a year ago.
Here’s a more close-up look at this fabric.
I have no idea how old this fabric is, but it had a nice vintage look to it with all of these world travel locations and icons.
I didn’t have quite enough to make two full sets of panels, so I used sheer pink chiffon to help complete these, doubling it up and making a loop for the curtain rod to go through.
Where they join I sewed on a green grosgrain ribbon and zig-zag stitched it with pink thread. I already had the green pull-down blinds for her windows, so it matched up nicely. (I think–I’m always questioning my own taste.)
I do have to admit that I never really had much experience working with sheer material. My vintage material wasn’t too tough to work with, but the pink chiffon was a little too “slippery” to work with for my taste.
All in all though, I was pleased with how these turned out and rather enjoy making curtains.
