Among the many, many things I bought yesterday was this Robert Kaufman pear fabric. Now mind you, after this last move and the near nervous breakdown I had packing up my fabric/yarn stash, I swore off ever buying fabric and yarn ever again. I would say thus far I’ve been entirely unsuccessful in yarn/fabric stash reduction. For the time being, I’ll blame Carolyn. =)
Originally, I bought the fabric with a bag project in mind but changed my mind after seeing this post. I kinda swore off making curtains after my last experience making them but once I get an idea in my head it’s hard to let go. This is the first sewn project I’ve tackled here in my space. I still haven’t worked out the logistics of my craft space and there were definitely a lot of frustrating moments when I realized I have no idea where my seam ripper and marking pens are? Still, I’m happy to report that my sewing machine and serger survived the move unscathed and appear to be in fine working condition.
I used the lined curtain tutorial from the Purl Bee. The only alterations being to adjust for a much smaller window (it’s the window to my back door). I’m a little too tired right now to appreciate the final product. I’m also a bit weighed down right after eating a heavy (but delicious!) dinner.
Meatloaf, buttermilk mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, and green beans. Ok, time to collapse.
