When I say whipped up what I really mean is..I cut the strips of white and navy, seen here.
The tape measurer was just a prop, because I didn't measure very well and the original version of the curtains weren't long enough to touch the floor. Okay, I am still not being completely honest...part of the curtains touched the floor. Can you say "crooked"? So, when my mother in-law was in town last week I sent her to the fabric store to get another yard. Thank goodness for the support team! Well, yesterday I anxiously cut the new strips for the bottoms of the curtains...crap...I cut them the wrong way. Now, they would be long enough, but not wide enough. I suck at being careful. So, I spent time making the final product longer and narrower. Now, all is as it should be.
I ended up spending 30.00 on the fabric (such a bargain!) and lots of wasted hours. But, I love the big fat horizontal navy blue and white stripes! This is the look I was aiming for in the first place and they look great with the faux roman shades from Dressing the Bedroom Windows, Part II.
