"Sewing mends the soul"
For many, sewing may mend the soul, but every time I pull out the sewing machine I usually get myself all worked up and I would probably end up cussing if my little men weren't around. What should take a few minutes takes me hours. I've come to the simple conclusion that me and sewing…we're like oil and water, we just aren't meant to be (boo-hoo). I was desperate for kitchen curtains since that house peeking through the window went up in what seemed like a week. We needed a little privacy…not that we are walking around naked in the kitchen, but to hide me being nosy and constantly looking out the window to see what they are up to ;). Yet, I couldn't find what I wanted in the stores…you see my dilemma!
Luckily, I found some tan and black damask fabric I liked, some tension rods, and some curtain clips. Add them all together and you have some no-sew curtains as long as you cut carefully. I know many who sew (including my mom) are probably saying, "Are you kidding me?! You put up just fabric without hemming the sides or putting backing on?" But for the rest of us DIYers who aren't blessed with sewing skills….the no-sew curtains work out just great.
Be inspired, get creative, and have fun!
