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...
