curtain fail.

A person who has had only 2 hours of sleep should not make curtains. A person who is too lazy to find the measuring tape should not measure for curtains. (I'm not even sure the measuring tape made it on the moving truck.). It's unbelievable to me that I managed to mess up 2 separate sets of curtains on the same day. I really thought I had measured correctly.

I'm happy with the eventual result on the brown floral curtains, but not loving the tab-top curtains. Ah, well... lesson learned, route to fabric store thoroughly memorized, tension on sewing machine shot. Time to take a break from sewing.

But they are cute! I love the brown flower fabric. Hope you can get more than 2 hours of sleep.

I hate sewing mistakes - you work your hiney off and the result can still come out wrong, and all your hard work doesn't count for anything. I love the brown floral fabric! Where did you find it?

I don't know if this will make you feel better (and really, consider the source here) but it took me several minutes and the hint in your title, for me to actually figure out where the mistakes were.

I think they are really cute. I want some snazzy curtains for my family room--it so needs color, but I don't think I could sew them. Beyond my very limited capabilities!

Ooh, I love the print of the long curtain. Where did you get it?
