New Curtains


Just made these curtains for my sewing studio from fabric I found at Goodwill. It's 2005 Ikea, and looks like fried eggs to me. I think I'll get some good inspiration from the color combinations in each little egg.



The panel idea is from Jacquie, over at Tall Grass Prairie Studio. The wires and clips are from Ikea. I put in two wires so they could open like this. Just a little bit of color to help with the coming darker days!

Oh wow - isn't that just the bestus fabric! Those colours and shapes are going to have your creative juices gushing. I have curtain envy:) Think I would be just going into my studio to get a dose of happy colours! Enjoy. Ciao

I'm always surprised by what people decide they don't want--whether given to Goodwill or sold at garage sales. The fabric was a great find for you, and it's being put to great use.
Your stacks of magazines and books look very inviting.

How cute! I wish I could find good stuff like that at our thrift stores. You really have to dig to get past all the junk!
