I recently posted about my love for outdoor curtains. I almost hit “submit order” on these lovelies but was having a hard time justifying $278.00 on curtains for my porch. So instead I surfed some online fabric stores and found an outdoor, black striped material for $9.99/ yard. $59.94 later I had my fabric and was ready to enlist my mom’s sewing machine and expertise to sew up my own outdoor curtains.
My mom made sewed the tabs to hide on the inside, top panel. The rod gets hidden but it still allows them to pleat and hang nicely.
Today it felt like a swag back sort of a day.
The whole set up has been occupying my boys and the neighborhood kids as a happy accident. Apparently the curtains make a great stage scene for an impromptu talent show. We call it our own front yard community theater.
At any rate, I’m really pleased with the result. They make a great addition to summer (even though it snowed most the day today).
