I needed bedroom curtains, because I managed to rip the blinds in my room out of the wall in a fit of Hulk-like rage. I wanted them to let in light, but not be sheer enough to see through. Also, I'm going through a loud-colors-and-glitz phase, so they needed to be BRIGHT and tacky.
I couldn't find curtains that fit the bill, but I did find a scarf valance I liked. So here's what I did with it:
At first they were too sheer, so I bought some $1/yard crinkle fabric and sewed it in as lining. First time lining anything, I think I did an okay job, considering I had no idea what I was doing!
Here's a closeup of the pattern. It's little silver raised dots - a little like puffy paint, but more durable.
I also like to make magnets from magnets - I collect giveaway magnets and recover them with cute stickers or tags that I find. Here's what I've got on my fridge so far:
This is my first project post! Please be kind...
