Adventures in Sewing... Curtains: Mission Accomplished

Sew, (hahaha! Instead of "So" -- I kill me!) it took me a while to get the curtains finished.. I forgot that Jerk Face was starting school again last week. He's going online.. which is really nice that he's able to be home... however, it still leaves him little time to hang out with me and LB... which means little time for me to get my curtains finished.
But, alas! They are complete. And as Jerk Face so eloquently put it:
"I'm actually surprised. They look like curtains."
Gee... Thanks Jerk Face!  He went on to explain that he knew it was my first time sewing...  mmmhmm. sure. *smile*

Jerk Face was a big help.  This is what he did for Father's Day, by the way... watched the big golf tournament ... Looks riveting, no?

Actually, he did help me hang them.. it involved power tools.. I let him play 'man'... Only kidding, folks! He's quite capable of playing man without me 'letting' him!  *smile*


And LB is amazed!


I used a pink fabric.. which reminded me of the fancy restaurant napkins after I sewed up all the the edges... and then I overlaid it with a sheer fabric with flowers on it... Are you ready for your close-up, Mr. Demille?

And the final product. It's not a very good shot... the lighting in her room is awful.. just know that Jerk Face is impressed by my Project Runway skills. And quote:  "They look like curtains."

LB thinks they're okay. She'll see how tonight goes... if they keep the room dark enough, she'll keep 'em!

Those are soo so cute!! Did they keep it dark enough? You can always get a dark out lining for them if not as you should definitely keep them!

Love that painting on the wall in the first picture
