A House is not a Home with out...Drapes!

There is just something about drapes that make a house feel so much more like a home! They can transform a room and bring warmth to any space.

So my big project for the last month has been making drapes for some one's house! It was such a fun and challenging project all at the same time.

Here are the rooms that got a new look...

(the pictures below are not the greatest...very difficult to photograph a window when the sun is setting! hahaha)

Living Room Drapes & Sheers...

These sheers are called "eye lash" curtains because they have this fringe that rolls up like an eye lash. (FYI...cutting into this fabric makes quite the mess! Do not vacuum your living room first and then cut out the fabric...hahaha)

Dining Room Drapes & Sheers...

You can kind of see in the picture below...that this cream fabric (looks yellow in the lighting below but it is cream I promise!) has a very subtle animal print to it...super cute!

Playroom Drapes & Sheers...

I loved loved loved this fabric! So fun and bright...and that lime green trim is awesome!

Kitchen Relaxed Roman Shades...

My biggest challenge by far was the kitchen! This was my very first attempt ever to make relaxed roman shades. They are exactly like roman shades minus the rods. This gives the curtains more of a balloon effect.

I am very very happy with they way they turned out! It is hard to see in the pictures but there is even some beautiful trim that hangs from the bottom.

These curtains even pull up and down...

I was so nervous when we were installing them! But I am so happy with they way they turned out!

Now on to the other ten projects that are cluttering up my sewing desk!

What have you been up to lately?
