In my room there is a WALL of windows. I wanted to figure out something to hang onto the windows that would be fun and bright, but didn't want just a plain window valance.
This picture was my COMPLETE inspiration. Thanks to my sis for sending it!
I measured the windows, found a pattern for my triangles, and figured out just how much fabric I was going to need.
I bought 8 different colors of fabric in 1/2 a yard for each one.
Mom had the idea to back the triangles with wonder under to make them a little stronger, and to maybe prevent so much fading from the sun beating in the windows. So I began ironing, tracing, and cutting. About 72 triangles later, I had everything that I needed!
I bought 5 packages of single fold bias tape to string them all together. We started by sewing, but then figured out that the wonder under and the backing was just too thick to be sewn. We headed up to my room, glued the strings how we wanted them, and then glued each and every triangle.
I used zebra fabric and my wonder under to add this friendly "Welcome."
And... here they are! I LOVE THEM! So bright and cheerful. I promise to share pics of my completed room soon. I'm having so much fun getting everything ready!
Linking here! P.S. Sorry to be posting so late tonight.... BUSY day!
