Sundays are the ideal day to get little projects done, like sewing or DIY or in my case both today!
I don't know about you but I am particularly terrible for starting a project and not finishing it forever, I have no idea what that is about, sometimes I just don't have the time but I suspect it's more because I lose interest or momentum!
Anyway way back last summer I set myself a schedule of about 6 weeks where I aimed to get as many unfinished projects finished as I could. I did pretty good actually but there are still things to do. During this time I put up a curtain rail in my office/sewing room, but didn't get round to making the curtains, yep that's last summer *hangs head in shame*
Today I decided it was about time I completed on the task!
Here is the fabric. Sorry for some reason the picture is a little blurry but you get the idea.
It's a modern repro of Hawaiian barkcloth, I've had it ages and ages and knew it was about time I did something with it!
And here they are made!!
I'd love to have floor to ceiling curtains but all our radiators are under the window and I just can't see the point in having curtains covering the heating. So I usually make mine short. These are a little shorter than I would normally make but it's all the fabric I had, I still think they look pretty cool though.
They don't quite reach the radiator but are much longer than the window sill so I'm happy. We have blinds on all our windows we have an extremely sunny house which I'm sure most would think is nice but in reality we have to turn the blinds a lot.
So that's my project Sunday, obviously I've been pottering around doing other stuff too, but I'm pretty pleased I finally got these done. Now what to do for next project!
Did you have a project Sunday? I'd be interested to know what you got up to!
