So that I do have something to show you, here are the curtains I made for Daughter's room a while ago. They've been hung for a couple of weeks and the photos have been taken I just had other things to write about since then.
This is the full view of the curtain when it's tied back (which it usually is because I like sunlight). The tie backs were an afterthought when she complained she couldn't keep them open. We just used a small hook (like you would for coffee cups) and button holes. Like so:
It works really well and she's able to open and close them on her own. She chose the fabric herself after trying to get me to make the curtains out of tulle and satin, I think she chose well. There are butterflies on it which match the butterfly decals on the upper part of one of her walls. And of course there's pink in her room (you know, before the blue phase kicked in).
Also, don't forget about the giveaway!
