Adding trim to a bought curtain
With all of the snow falling outside, it is a perfect time for
some much needed spring cleaning.
Time to sort out our home, and work on some unfinished projects.
It seems like every spring/late winter there is a room or two that needs painting, a closet to clean or items to be replaced,but this year I have a need for change.
We have been in this house for over six years. Almost a record for us. And my inner self is screaming for change. We don't want to move, I really enjoy life here. We get a lot of good energy and happy feelings in this house. Like a warm hug. So we aren't moving anytime soon. But to cure my need for change, I have been working room by room. Painting, moving furniture,
changing out pillows, and adding some new details.
And that's what I am doing with my
weekends from work. I have gotten to know
the paint guy at Home Depot on a first name basis!
More on the painting later, but in the mean time I want to
share a project that I have been working on
for the last few days.
My master bathroom curtain.
I wanted to have a nice lacy piece to cover the window. Privacy isn't
an issue because it has a frost finish to the glass. Something that would let the light in
and still feel cosy through all of the seasons.
This was a curtain that I bought at JYSK but it ended up being
way too long. I cut the extra length off the bottom, then finished the edge
with my sewing machine.
I found a crochet pattern that would work nicely with the
fabric on a Youtube video.
I'm loving the cute little flowers,
However, I am just learning to crochet, so this probably looks a little
rough to you, but I am ok with that.
Once the trim was complete, I sewed it to the
right side of the bottom of the curtain.
Super fun, adding the perfect detail to an otherwise simple curtain.
Have a great day!
