ring the curtain up

once again, busy as a bee with the house.  found the perfect fabric for curtains but my poor tiny sewing machine couldn't take it anymore so i had to borrow a friend's to finish them.

the simple curtain rod i found at a chinese shop for half the price what the home decor shops were offering.  the rings and alligator clips we bought in ikea.

this is my first time sewing curtains by the way so couldnt tell you enough how much this tutorial from Domestic Imperfection helped me! it took me 3 weeks (because i had to borrow a sewing machine) to finish the two panels but here is the final product:

another project that i finished sewing in only about an hour but took two weeks to find the near-perfect fabric is this one below.  the fabric is dark green (because i couldnt find black).  i used this tutorial from Shelterness as a guide.

here's how it looks now:  
i gotta do something about the colours! they're everywhere!


  1. Your curtains look great. It's nice that you can sew your own curtains, they are very expensive to purchase. Love your choice of fabric.

  2. That's a beautiful room! I love your curtains. I still have just blinds and was just now thinking about curtains. I hate to lose the light though. My house really needs light.

    1. thanks jeanne! are u back from your fabulous cruise? :)
