Before I start telling y’all about this project, I should share how much I hate sewing. HATE IT! A few years ago I acknowledged defeat and gave my machine away vowing never to sew again. Well, I caved and bought a cheap-o sewing machine from Walmart over the labor day weekend. As usual, it was all about being thrifty. I’d been prowling local stores Etsy looking for new throw pillows and I can’t bring myself to cough up $40 and up for a pillow. So (sew?) here I go again with the darn sewing machine. And here’s the latest project at Cottonwood Drive…….
We moved to our new house at the end of June and the new dining room and landing windows have been bare since then.
Not a big deal since they let in some nice light and that side of the house is pretty private but I’ve been obsessing over adding some kind of window treatment to cute them up. I had a ton of extra fabric I from re-covering my dining room chairs. (Read all about that adventure here). I didn’t really know how to calculate yardage so I bought way too much and it’s just been sitting in the basement since then. I also bought an iron along with my sewing machine since I thought I lost them in the move. Found the irons the day after I bought the new one. I now have three irons. Yay, me and my fabulous organization skills.
