If you remember from my bucket list post, I wasn’t interested in making curtains for my windows (there are six of them and they are HUGE) but rather to cover up cluttered shelves, like this:
This was a fairly straight forward project. I ordered fabric I liked (surprise! It’s blue, green and puppies!!) and measured the height and width of my shelves.
Then I cut the fabric to be about two inches taller than the book shelf, so I could fold it over an inch and make a pocket for a curtain rod; and a few inches wider on each side so that I could bunch it on the rod.
Then all I needed to do was break out my trusty heat-n-bond, which I previously used on my bunting banner, and iron on a hem and a pocket for the rod.
|I folded over the top and used the heat n bond to create a pocket down the entire length of the curtain for the curtain rod to slide through|
And TA-DA! Instant clutter cover!!

I do have one more surprise project up my sleeve, but pretty much all that is left is my listening center seats and TPT stuff. The TPT stuff I will continue to work on throughout the fall, but these last few weeks of summer I am much more focused on relaxing and soaking up the sun, than sitting in front of my computer all day. Can I get an AMEN!
