If I hadn't decided to get fancy, this post would have happened weeks ago.
But alas, I have finally hemmed the bedroom curtains. Check! I didn't cut any length off the bottom, but instead I decided to just fold it under to make a wide hem. This worked out great, because it created a 4 or 5 inch band at the bottom which looked really nice. I also decided that I would finish the look with a double seam, so it ended up looking like this.
As pleased as I was with the look, this was the sole reason that this project took me so long. Seriously...isn't this a pattern around here? I started the second panel, and successfully completed the first seam. Then, a few inches into the second seam, I RAN OUT OF THREAD!
What? My first thought was that this is just a few inches from the floor. Would anyone besides me notice? No, they wouldn't. But I would know, and it would bug me. Okay, I thought to myself. I'm sure I have some more thread. So I dug through my thread collection, and would you believe it? I couldn't find tan. Not even anything close.
So a few weeks went by (I partially blame Mason) before I could make it to JoAnn to get more thread. But I finally made it. I sewed the second seam. And now one more item is checked of my list.
