Tackle It Tuesday

I had forgotten how different a room can look with curtains! LOL And, I've been meaning to buy them for Pojke's room. We're moving from his "baby" decor to a "big boy" patriotic red-white-and-blue theme. Then, I came across an idea.

The last Saturday of March, I was taking advantage of Goodwill's "everything's 50% off" end of the month sale and found a flat sheet and a pillowcase for $1.50. And, with the sewing bug running rampant here and there lately, a few minutes with an iron and the sewing machine and *voila*! New curtains!

Great work! I wished that I lived closer to you so that you could teach me how to finish an apron that I started, ohh, a year ago, that's just sitting in my closet. I'm stuck on one part and I don't understand the directions! LOL!

Have a blessed day!

That's awesome. I wish I had more time, even for a simple project like this!
