The winner of the Shaklee giveaway is comment #8!
Can you do a tutorial of the additions you made to the ikat curtains?? I love the changes you made to them.
Casey is a real life friend, but I used random.org to generate a winner. Pinky swear! Congrats girl!
It's funny that Casey commented about the change I made to the curtain panels because I was planning to post about it when I announced the winner of the giveaway.
I pulled a magic removal trick. I removed the ribbon trim on the edge of the panels.
With ribbon trim -
Without ribbon trim -
Actually, I didn't really remove the trim. You just don't see it anymore because I hot glued and folded it in to the hem.
Why did I do this?
If you remember, I added the blue fabric at the bottom after I stenciled the curtain panels. You know because hindsight is 20/20. What I was left with was this.
After a while the "break" in the ribbon just got to me. So I pulled the panels down when I Shaklee cleaned the patio doors and hot glued the ribbon edge to the inside hem. It was kind of like magic. Now you see the trim.
Now you don't.
Now I have a nice finished edge. I mean if you consider a hot glued hem a nice finished edge, which I clearly do. Plus, it only took about 10 minutes which to any diy'er is pretty magical right?! Someday I'll learn to sew; today is not that day. ;)
So there you go, add that to the millions of other reasons I love me a hot glue gun!
Have a great weekend!
