As you can see I am in the middle of redoing my bedroom. The bed is pulled away from the wall that I am painting a chocolate color, and the throw pillows aren't on the bed. The dresser isn't where it usually is and the night stand that you can see is one that I have redone for the new look, click here to see it. I've been wanting a new look for some time now and so I finally just jumped in.
I picked out my curtain fabric that is really upholstery fabric, but I loved the color and print so I decided to go with it. I decided since it was so heavy that I didn't need to line the back of the curtains.
I folded the fabric over 1/4" and ironed it all around the panel. I then turned the sides over 1 1/2" and hemmed them before I hemmed the top or bottom. I folded the top and bottom over 4" and then sewed them in place.
On the top after sewing a 4" casing I divided the 4" in half and sewed a straight seam, leaving the 4" casing in two 2" casings. One for the ruffle and a 2" casing for the rod.
I sewed the side seam first so that the bottom and top hems would be on top, I think it looks more professional and finished.
I had some cream colored panels up there before, which I liked, but I was ready for some color. I love the color that these add to my bedroom, I also put color on the wall, the upholsterd chair, and the new headboard that I upholstered. Check out the whole thing.
The room has come together finally, it was a lot of work and time but I am really loving the change.
Thanks for stopping in, I love comments and new followers too.
