Sew a fine seam ~ I actually SEWED!!!

So I did actually manage to get some sewing accomplished recently.
A friend moved with her family to Haiti recently, and before she left she brought me some fabric to make her some curtains for their house there.  This burlap is for her son's room (i think!)
Isn't the ribbon she found so cute?!


She wanted a fold in the center to give it a sort of roman shade look.  Easy to do and adds great texture I think.  I really like how this one turned out.

There were two of these and they were each about 62 inches long.  For lack of a better way to photograph them easily and lack of motivation to take the time and effort to get good photos this is what I have.  Horizontal stripe piece at the top and the bottom 2/3 vertical.  The trim between the two really added just what they needed!  I hope they work well for her and are just what she had in mind.

Always love burlap! And those stripes are great too! I was thinking the other day about making a vertical striped roman shade for my kitchen and making the stripes on the valance horizontal. Would love to see these curtains in their home! :)
