Remember the tablecloth that inspired my living room redo? After scouring the internet I was able to find my tablecloth and ordered two in hopes of turning them into curtains for my living room. I am happy to report that, with the help of Karebear at True Tales From Cliftonia, that dream is now a reality!!
Wanna see how it was done?
I was really excited to find these extra tablecloths because I loved the pattern so much! All the curtains I was finding were just lacking. Maybe I am bias, but I just love the pattern on these. Jazzed as I was to score the tablecloths, my next mission was actually turning them into curtains. Uh, yeah, did I mention that I don’t sew? It’s not that I don’t want to, really, I do. My grandmother was as seamstress for crying out loud. And I think that has been the reason I never really took up with the sewing machine. My Grammy was always there to do it for me. Sadly though, she hasn’t been able to sew in a few years because of Macular Degeneration.
In walks Karebear to the rescue! She said she would help me set up my machine (brand new two years ago, I took it out once, got confused and it never saw the light of day again) and make my table-tains a reality. Bless her heart! We did have an evening scheduled when our brilliant co-worker Patty suggested we bring the machines in and do it on our lunch hour! Multi-tasking, I love it!
We hit a bit of a snag getting the machine ready. One of my amazing student workers graciously assisted us and then we were on our way!
It’s one of the main reasons I had to put it up 😉 Ahh, Friends, who could live with out them!
After watching her tackle this and seeing how simple it really is I feel the need for more projects!
Look out Joann Fabrics I’ma comin’!
I am so pleased with how nice these table-tains go in my freshly painted living!
