No one carries this fabric I dreamed up in my head! What's wrong with those fabric makers? Can't they read my mind? Well, ok, I did find a few fabrics. But, they were either out of it or charging an arm AND a leg for a yard. Really, people, I need my arm. And my leg. They can't have 'em.
So, I decided to try and paint my own stripes. Cuz chevron was just a bit to daunting for me. I found these awesome white cotton panels at Ikea and brought them home to paint.
What do you think?
I ended up using a whole huge bottle of yellow paint and probably should have used another one because look...
I hemmed the panel using an iron on strip. What are those called again???
It was awesome. I may use this for everything hemming need now.
Anyway, the window is small, so it only requires on panel. But, I'm at a loss of what to do with the splotchiness. We have black-out blinds behind the curtain, so in theory you wouldn't be able to see the splotchiness unless we had those blinds open and it was a sunny day. Which, lets be honest, we'd have open a lot because who wants to live in a black-out blind room all day long when it's beautiful outside?
And is it to circus looking? Too bright? Does the yellow not work? I still have one panel left that I could do something with....so, all is not lost.
