Could I Do This?
I've got curtains on my mind lately. Particularly the lack of them in our bedroom. I love these Greek key-trimmed beauties featured in Coastal Living and wonder, could I make these? I could save some cash by using a drop cloth or other inexpensive fabric, and I feel good about my box pleat-making skills after making the skirted desk. Wes could break out his carpentry skills to help me with the body of the valance, and surely my limited sewing skills could handle a trim. If not, a little hem tape would do the job.
Lewis & Sheron has a pretty and affordable Greek key trim ($12/yard).
This flat tape might be interesting ($8/yard).
But I am especially leaning toward this blue and blue geometric ($12/yard).
