Ribbon Trim Curtains





I purchased these curtains on clearance a few months ago and have had them hanging in my kitchen.


They're a little boring (to say the least)...


but they have served their purpose.


To give them a little more interest I added a ribbon trim to the edge of each curtain.





This was my first opportunity to use my new sewing machine!



It was super easy and and great practice for straight stitching.



I'm still mastering the machine, but after this project my sewing skills might have improved!

We have big plans to start some home improvement projects in the next few weeks so stay tuned!

  5. I have drop cloth curtains that look very similar,, a little ribbon might spruce it up a bit. Yours look great.

  7. Those are just adorable. The ribbon adds so much. Can't wait to see the home improvement projects. I hope it will involve pictures of both the little and big guy doing some trouble shooting.
