Sometimes I sew.
Sometimes I sew. Not very well, but I sew. Since we moved into our house I have been looking for just the right fabric for some cafe curtains in my kitchen. I made multiple trips to the fabric store and on 3 different occasions I ended up settling on some fabric I didn’t totally love but thought “eh, it’ll be fine.” The fact is, it never was fine and the end result fell very flat. I had an image in my head but couldn’t ever find the right material to make it a reality.
It wasn’t until Katie went to Homegoods and found a tablecloth that she loved and turned it into roman shades (post coming) that I thought maybe I could go that route too and find a tablecloth for the fabric instead. Good old Homegoods never fails me. I found the perfect tablecloth to turn into cafe curtains and they even had matching napkins so I could coordinate a whole table setting. I bought 3 tablecloths two of them were 60×120 and one was 60×80. I really only needed about 1 and 1/2 of them which means that for $35 I could make 5 curtains!
Like I said, I don’t sew very well so I have a few to fix (they’re a little crooked) but I’m thrilled with the results.
