DIY: Playroom Curtains

And yet another post of pictures I had taken with the intention to blog and never did. I still thought I would share 🙂

Alert the media, we have another playroom progress update. The big reveal will be soon y’all, I promise. So I finally (even though I am as slow as molasses) got around to making the curtains for the playroom. I’ve shown you the wonderful, beautiful fabric that I bought for them.

Well, that fabric just sat around on my desk a while. Every.single.time I would go to the sewing machine something would happen, a child would need attention, the thread would break, the bobbin was threaded incorrectly (this was the story of my life). Finally today I was able to get everything in order and as soon as Ms. M went to bed I started. Now readers beware, I am NOT a avid sewer, I just like to think I am 😉 I make curtains, pillow covers, blankets…things with straight lines. I probably don’t do everything right, I always NEVER pin. I just hope I go in a straight line. Things work out (usually), they are not perfect but I am okay with this. Life isn’t always perfect but my products usually turn out nice and everyone is happy with them!

Firstly I threaded the machine.

Then (and some people would frown at me) I started to sew. I pray that I continue to go in a straight line ( doesn’t usually happen) but I can always usually stay within my folded line.

 

Then voila, you have curtains. I love them and I believe they give the room some personality. C loves them too.

 

 

Another great thing about this material is that it is an indoor/outdoor fabric which I figure will work out great in a playroom meant for little kids and their little sticky fingers!

I also got around to hanging my alphabet cards. My idea of twine and mini clothespins was an EPIC FAIL! The cards were too heavy, and they came crashing down. I just put them up using sticky tac. I think they look great. Pictures of that will come very soon. I still have a few more projects to do before I post the full playroom reveal, but I think the room is coming along very nicely.
