New Curtains...

I found this perfect fabric - perfect color, perfectly nubby - to make curtains for the dinning room patio door. But alas! there was not enough to do the job. I found it at a fabric outlet so I waited, thinking there might be some more showing up. I waited a year and no luck so finally decided to add another color. I've been intrigued by the striped curtains and decided to give it a shot. I'm mostly pleased with the finished results.
 I added ruffles at the seams - however, if I'd do it over, I'd leave them off.

The fabric was inexpensive, the ruffles were easy to do and all-in-all, I'm happy with them!

I have a "change the furniture and house" bug!
It's finished but more pictures will have to wait till another time.

It's the ruffles that I tho't made them special and not your 'run of the mill'. I wouldn't have tho't of them.... Love 'em! You can whip up anything...

Hi Esther~
Those curtains are just wonderful. I'm surprised you would leave the ruffle off! I think they look fabulous.
I haven't gotten the 'change the furniture bug' yet. I hope I catch it soon. I've hit the dol-drums this week!

...take care, Pat

The curtains looks fabulous. The ruffles made it a little bit girly but that's okay. It still works.
