On the 6th day of Christmas...

I made StripWork Curtains!

Oh my! These are so easy and soooo CUTE! I designed them based on the curtains I did for my booth at the last Quilt Market. They are just strips of fabric cut with the edges left raw! I purchased a sheer curtain from Target for $5 and use it as a background piece to attach the strips to and included some beautiful lace and crocheted trims to give that that vintage feel that I love so much. I especially love that I was able to combine my favorite design from my own fabric line with some of my other ALL time favorite fabrics from Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, and Lila Tueller (my auntie). All of them have been sitting on my shelf begging me to cut them up and use them, but I had to wait for the right project to come along.

When I decided to design a real sewing room for myself, I knew I wanted to use these. Lila is painting a picture for me to go over the fire place with all the same colors. I'll do a little spotlight on my new sewing space when it's all done, but I still have a lot of work to do!
