We have this area in the play/mud/craft room that stores all the large toys.
It’s right above the cabinets and it looks really ugly.
I decided the space was in need of some ruffled curtains.
For about $100 I could of bought one of these beauties:
Sticking to my budget I made my own for $10.00.
A few years back we turned some painters tarps into outdoor drapes and thought this would be the perfect solution for this room as well.
This is so easy, YOU can do this!
Cut fabric into long thin strips.
Sew your sides to prevent them from fraying or do what I did and cut them with these scissors for some added interest.
Start sewing your ruffles.
I bunched the fabric with my fingers and then pushed it through the machine so the stitch would be in the middle of the strip of fabric.
When you get to the end of one strip, tuck the end under and add your next strip on top.
Keep going until your left with a whole bunch of beautiful ruffles!
Sophie sure liked them!
You can find the finished mudroom here.
Thanks for stopping in today!
