curtains!


A few days ago my husband came home with a curtain rod for the little girls' room. There had been a white shade in the window, but he doesn't like shades. At all. When he set the rod down on the kitchen table I knew what it was for. I asked, "Didn't you get curtains?" He replied no - figured I could go get some fabric and make some.

Hm. I would have never even thought about making curtains! Sure, I could give it a try. I remembered that I had bought a bunch of cute fabric last summer when it was $2 a yard thinking I'd make backpacks or something that I never got around to actually doing.

The stripes in this fabric match the little one's comforter almost perfectly. I was particularly excited about the pom-pom trim. I had seen it on clearance for almost nothing a yard (maybe a quarter?) so I bought what they had. I was so excited to be able to add that cute touch to the curtains.

Tiger, as you can see, likes to sit in the window. She enjoys hissing at Pepper when he's playing outside.
