Sew, sew cute!




I know...you're loving my pun this morning. I am, however, so relieved that I've finished one of BabyGirl's windows and only have one more to go. I'm also totally psyched that it turned out exactly as I had hoped. I have a love/hate relationship with welting (the cording around the edges of the fabric) but I finally found a good welting foot for my machine and it seems to be all about love for now.

For all you sewin' bitches (my mom's term) out there, I got the pattern from Pate Meadows. The instructions were extrememly clear and easy to understand. I will definitely order from tehm again. For all you spendin' too much money on window treatment bitches, they also have some nice ready made options for silk panels. Check it out!

The window treatment is gorgeous! Great job. Oh man, I really want to learn to sew. I bought a new sewing machine over a year ago and have never even taken it out of the box. Maybe someday.

Those are adorable. I have a friend who does all my window treatments because I can sew but I am definitely not good a measuring!

I am currently paying somebody else waaaaay too much for window treatments in my living room and dining room, but I didn't have to spend a week shopping for fabric, so it's a give and take thing. I'm tired of shopping for fabric lately.

You are so talented! You might just motivate me to take the old sewing machine out of retirement!
