My project

This was a project that was supposed to be done in January.  But, alas, we are almost done with February and it just got finished.  For my birthday, I got stuff from my parents to make drapes for the living room.  With a LOT of help from my mom, this is the final product:

I learned a lot while doing this project.  Namely:
  • Like I said, my mom is amazing.  Could not have done it without her.
  • I have never been, and never will be, a perfectionist.  I try.  Hard.  But it's just not in me!
  • Handling this much fabric is easier when there are two people involved.  Thanks, Chris, for your help!
  • Even through the blood, sweat, and tears (there honestly were all three!), I feel very accomplished.
  • I honestly do not know how people could do this without pleater tape.  Seriously.  I could barely do it with pleater tape!
  • I CAN do something I put my mind to.
  • I am not sewing again for a long, long, long time.

  1. Drapes very similar to these were on my to do list for almost a year, and then I just decided to buy some. Awesome job!
