Meanwhile there is this little thing called Thanksgiving. My daughter is making her first trip home from college and I was in her room dusting, checking on towels, etc. And oh, those curtains. When we moved to this house, curtains were not at the top of the list. Besides, we had the curtains from our former house and they would just have to do. (I wish I had a photo of them ). They were fine except for one thing. They were about 16 inches TOO SHORT. The french doors in her room lead to the balcony. I've been meaning to either replace those curtains or…… I've just been meaning to get to them. Finally it was time. Dum Dum Duhhhh
I took the curtains down, found another set of panels that I had in the attic, and decided to do a little magic FREE magic. And that is the best magic.
Now for the fun part. I just sewed two straight stitches. One parallel to the other. Pulled up the bobbin thread to create an even ruffle.
Pinned right sides together. Yes, I use a lot of pins.
Sewed a straight stitch removing pins as I went along.
New window treatment.
