My lone kitchen window has been bare since we moved into this house. At first I wanted to leave the window bare, and let the glorious sunlight pour in. But then the glorious sunlight turned into the blinding, migraine inducing sunlight and the bare window lost its attraction. The bloom was off the rose, as they say.
In New Jersey there are precious few fabric stores. Apparently no one in the tri-state area sews anymore. Very sad commentary on our society, methinks.
Anyhoo. We have one really great store called Fabricland that sells an abundance of fabric and notions. I picked out the most adorable Waverly fabric, and then my mother suggested adding some fringe, she's awesome that way.
Behold! The rooster!
The fringe, and the coffee.
The window. Duh.
Close-up of the fringe, it's so sweet it makes my teeth hurt. And, I know that I need to trim the fabric from the bottom of the mistreatment. Let's just say that I live 90% of my life in the "It's good enough" category.
Drapery nails, another Nester recommendation.
The finished project. From start to finish this took me about an hour, and the total cost was under $20. I am sew happy. yuk-yuk
