I made some curtains recently. I didn't take seam allowances into account on the first pair and they ended up being too narrow. So I just added another panel. I like how it looks funky and intentional.  Wink



I made another pair afterwards, remembering seam allowance.  Roll Eyes

Thanks! I bought the fabric in walmart a few years back to make a bathrobe.

The fabric's really "polyester" feeling though and didn't feel good against the skin. Curtains seemed perfect because the fabric looks good even though it doesn't feel that great.

I love the material- it looks like those motifs are screenprinted over the background, is that right?

Ps love your icon/avatar- janice was always my favourite muppet

Hmm. None of the colors show thru on the back of the fabric so I'm not sure if that means it's all screenprinted.

As for Janice, I saw the actual Electric Mayhem bus being auctioned off on ebay a couple of years back. Wish I could have gotten it. That would have made such a great art space.
