I love how easy curtains are
That's what happened to me last night with these curtains... boy, after making dresses and skirts from patterns, with linings and zippers and all, tearing down the center of your 5.5 yard length of fabric and hemming all around is darn easy!!
I bought this cool print quilting fabric on a good sale at JoAnn's with a new shower curtain in mind. I loved the print but wasn't sure about it being our shower curtain. Then I found a near-perfect shower curtain at Marshall's, and this fabric was about to go back to JoAnn's when I realized it was the exact right colors for our upstairs office.
My fiancé uses the office, primarily, and it was painted this bleh sort of sage green color that I would NOT have picked for our small and plain townhouse. But it was already there, and Jason liked it. But anyway, I had 5.5 yards of the 45" wide fabric, and all I did was even up the edges and tear down the center, so I had two 2.25-yard pieces. I turned under the selvedge and sewed the long seams, then made a casing at the top and a hem at the bottom.
I bought a perfect black curtain rod on clearance at JoAnn for $9. Here it is... it goes with our black Target futon (a steal on Craigslist!), black IKEA bookcases, and little green IKEA rug!
