here's the dl: i moved out this summer to go to school, so my mom has been re-doing my room... she was having a nervy spaz because she couldn't find any curtains that she liked or that matched the color of the new bed spread, so while i was here we decided to make them ourselves. well, mostly her, as i am not very sewing machine savvy. she bought a plain white sheet and a curtain pattern. we used acryllic paints and lids as stamps. you can imagine how classy the stamps were. anyway, they aren't nearly as crafty as most of the other stuff on here, but they look pretty good. there are really two, but i like it with just one up:

the squares are actually teal and brown, but you can't see it very well on here.

Really great idea! Looks like some of the retro prints/ shapes. Who painted your picture? I like it too.

What a neat idea to use lids as stamps! it turned out great! i like the top, i would've immediately thought to just make it one giant hole for the rod, and not many small ones (if you get what i'm saying x_x i forgot the name hehe). i love this!

the name is katie. :]

Those would look lovely in my bedroom hehe.  Very nice indeed.  I've made curtains from sheets before, for the same reason you did, but mine are always plain and I always make a mess of a tab top...so great work!  I'm jealous lol

i would have made a mess of the top, but luckily my mom has skills when it comes to sewing. haha.

Sweet! I love the simplicity and elegance of this idea. I have been researching fabric altering ideas for my own curtain plans since all my fabric is umm...used, old, plain sheets. Smiley

What kind of fabric is the sheet you used? Thanks are great project!

POTTER?? Handbuilder? If you want craftster to add a ceramics board let everyone know!!
