When we finally realized that the sun from Silas’ East facing window was waking him up every morning, I started to look for some curtains to keep it dark, so the whole house could sleep in a little bit.
Much like being alone while pooping, sleeping until 7:25 is a luxury that I rarely get to indulge in.
After looking at Anthropologie and Land of Nod for cute curtains, I cried a little bit, because Anthro wants $250.00 per panel. That’s $500.00 bucks for curtains people!
I keep trying to quit Ikea, but I’m a glutton for their meatballs, and I keep coming back for more. Just kidding their meatballs are gross, I like the rediculously low prices, and trying to pronounce their Swedish products.
So I bribed my tribe with soft serve, and took them to Ikea, they bounced on beds and smacked chairs, and I searched out the perfect curtains.
I was unimpressed with their selection, so I bought 5 yards of fabric instead, because I’m really good at sewing.
Except not at all. My mom never sewed. And my step-mom is a wizard seamstress, and tried to teach me once, but all I heard was measure this and mathematic that, and really I’m not much of a numbers girl. I enjoy the tried and true “eyeball” method for most things in my life.
But now I was the proud owner of 5 yards of fabric, and I had some eyeballing and sewing to do.
Also, 5 yards of fabric for $25.00!
So for $25.00 you’d better believe I was going to sew the crap out of that fabric.
Anthropologie can shove it. I didn’t want your whimsical bird curtains anyways.
But don’t behold too closely, because you’ll see my shoddy workmanship:
