Cabbage Curtains

Yes.... I did it! I actually sewed something that is worth sharing here......some grommet top cabbage cutrains!

I've wanted to update the curtains in the master bedroom for quite some time.  I finally found some cute fabric at Ikea... with a great price I might add :)  It wasn't until I got it home that I realized that the pattern was actually a cabbage design... haha!  I still like it anyway. The colors are great!

Every time I attempt to sew something it takes waaaaay longer than expected.  It's one of those things that I have to make many many mistakes with before I catch on.  These curtains are no exception.  I think I spent about 5 hours total because I couldn't get the right tension on my machine to get a nice even stitch with this thick upholstery fabric. Thank goodness for my handy seam ripper... haha!   At least I learned a lot about adjusting the tension. You live and learn right?

  1. Way to go! I've been intending to make curtains for our downstairs windows for two years now and haven't done it yet. I'll have to call you for some tips when I finally do it.
