Make Your Own Curtains To Get What You Want

I am either ahead of my time or way behind the times.  Usually when I get a decorating idea, I can't find what I am looking for.  Or if I do find it, I don't want to spend the money they charge because I think I can make it myself.   Sometimes it doesn't turn out at all, but I try.  This happened with a little valance I wanted on my front door window.  Nothing seemed right, so I crocheted one myself.


I am not going to publish the pattern because I don't know copyright laws.  It is in the Annie's Pattern Club book from April-May 1989 if anyone is interested and I still have the pattern.  It is very quick to crochet.

My daughter ran into the same problem recently.  She remodeled her boys bathroom, and she wanted orange curtains.  You can imagine how difficult that was to find.  She asked me if I could make some simple curtains.  I did and here they are.




Completed bathroom.  It turned out so cute.

I hope she doesn't mind that I took a photo of the bathroom the other day when I brought  the orange curtains.  I almost changed the direction of the toilet paper.  I am probably the only person in the world who thinks that toilet paper coming over the top just doesn't look right.  She has come to my house and changed mine but I'm not that mean. 

Hopefully tomorrow I will have something more interesting to write about.  So until tomorrow,

GOOD NIGHT!
