Finished Drapes

They're done!
The drapes in my front room were definitely a labor of love.
I figured I spent at least 9 hours sewing them, but I think they were worth the effort.

I started with 98 inch off white Ikea drapery panels.
I bought this nice thin woven brown fabric and cut my stripes.

I did a lot of this.......

And a lot of this........

  But I absolutely LOVE them!


Here's a little detail of the stripe.




Two windows, four panels, sixteen stripes.
I used an ENTIRE full size spool of thread.
But I couldn't be happier with the results.
