Making New Curtains!

The old curtains in the Mean Green Love Machine were pretty worn and ugly. Tom said, Hey! You can make some new ones, right?
Uh, um, yeah, sure. I have a 35-year-old sewing machine, haven't sewn a thing in, oh, maybe 20 years or more...but, sure, I can make some new curtains! 
Oh, the old curtains have drapery pleats? And the drapery hooks need to work with the existing drapery track? Yeah, sure, no problem. I can figure it out, right?

Let's see how it turned out:

ed note: I bought this fabric at Beverly's on Hillsdale in San Jose, Ca. It was kind of expensive, at $10 a yard but had the little trailers on it, which was exactly what I was looking for: a little funky, a little retro and definitely warm and inviting!

Awesome! You can sew for me anytime. I absolutely love the fabric!

Love, love, love the material! Good for you for tackling the drapes with the hardware thing, that was a challenge! Can't wait to see it in person!
