Okay, I'm all about sharing my mistakes as well as my successes. Yesterday I made a big boo boo and I found it pretty funny actually.
First off, let me say that I hate making curtains. And I've made over a dozen for our new house. I've been putting off the bay window in the great room for about a year now. Because really, who wants to make a 6 foot valance??
Yesterday I decided to finally just do it. Here is my end result.
Here are the valances in the rest of the room...
Do you see what's wrong?
I didn't notice until I was sitting down about 10 mins after hanging the big one. Yup, this is what happens when you wait a year to finish a project.
I though - oh, I have enough fabric to just use the length and not have to patch it all together. Whoops. The rest of the curtains are all cut on the width.
Guess I've got a date with my seam ripper tonight.
