Last weekend I stopped in Hancock Fabrics while spending down a few Christmas gift cards. I was searching for faux fur to recover a curved leg bench I found, but instead happened upon a bolt of beautiful drapery fabric. It was on clearance, and the total yardage for curtains cost me only $15. I decided to take a gamble on the fabric for the master bedroom.
The grey background of the fabric has a beautiful brushed texture that adds dimension to the window. The curtains look a lot more luxurious than their $15 price tag.
I sewed them simply with tab tops and straight edge seams.
I prefer my curtains to pool on the floor, but after a lively Twitter conversation I realized not everyone agrees with me. Which do you prefer – pooling, exact length, or a little short?
The curtains are a big improvement over the plain black cotton curtains we’ve had for years. This was one fabric gamble that paid off!Pin It
