It's been a few days, but I've been sewing!!
Well, I have been very busy sewing the drapes for my sitting room and dining room. Here is a picture of the sitting room drapes!!! I just have to hem the ones in the dining room and then I will post a picture of them too. I have sewn a total of 44 yards of fabric for them. The drapes are lined, and have a drop and a half per curtain!! I used pleater tape and hooks because I wanted a more formal look to the drapes. Did I have a problem finding rings to hang them on!!! Rings commonly have little spring clips on them now. I could only find a ring with a tiny ring on them for $30.00 for 10 from a very overpriced store. So, that being said, my handy husband took the little clips off, leaving the wire circle. It works wonderfully. Oh well, I better get back to that horrible hemming job awaiting me. I hand hemmed the front fabric because I hate the line at the bottom from the sewing machine. I did machine the hem of the lining fabric though.
Have a good day and I will chat again soon.
