I’m gradually getting my craft room/office decorated just the way I like. I’m putting the most effort into this room, because it’s where I spend the majority of my time. It’s were I do all my blogging, most of my project creating, fulfill all my orders, etc, so I want it to be very fun and highly functional.
These are the curtains I started making nearly a year ago! I saw this pleated window panel tutorial on Stitch Fancy, and immediately fell in love. I liked the curtains so much that I even chose to use the same material!
I needed three panels for my double windows right in front of my desk. I chose to make the fairly short (just enough to cover the window). Typically, I like floor length curtains, but these have a bed, a desk, and a file cabinet in front of them. Therefore you really wouldn’t be able to see the length.
I love how them match my magnetic memo board right beside it. I also can’t WAIT to show you how they match the file cabinet (which recently received a serious makeover by yours truly).
One of my favorite features of the curtains are the bell pleats and the covered buttons. I got a kit at the craft store and covered the buttons myself. I know the bell pleats might not look easy, but they really were not difficult at all.
I’m also afraid I can’t take too much credit for completing the curtains. At least 85% of the credit goes to my mom, who actually made most of them for me! (That’s me with her and my grandma on Mother’s Day this year.)
