curtains for mom

My mom and step-dad have a little bathroom window at their place that was in need of some type of window covering.  I found some adorable coordinating fabrics and made two small panels with tie-backs and a ruffle at the bottom and packaged them up in time for Christmas.  They’re lined, so they have a finished look on both sides, and it was my first time adding a ruffle to curtains!  I didn’t take many of pictures before shipping them off, so I’m hoping to get a picture of it this spring when we visit and it’s hung in its proper place… but for now here’s a sneak peek:

The fabrics are from Denyse Schmidt’s line of fabric that is sold at Joann’s.  I find that Joann’s fabric quality is hit and miss, but their premium and designer collections are much better.  Now, combined with a Black Friday sale and 50% off coupon, the material was quite a steal!  And I love the colors.  The main fabric is cream with a geometric print in olive and navy/gray.  The ruffle and tie-backs are the same dark blue/gray and it goes with the existing decor, but adds a cute retro look.  I can’t wait to see how it looks at their place!
