It doesn't get any better than repurposing Sound of Music-style. Caroline and I had the exact same idea at the exact same moment yesterday around the sewing counter. What if we turned the curtains into skirts, like Maria??
This sewing project is a piece of cake. Like a total of 20 minutes until you have a skirt.
- Thread wide ribbon through the curtain rod loop.
- Sew both short ends of the valance until you reach the curtain rod loop.
- Continue the seam on the other side of the curtain rod loop. (That way you won't sew your ribbon into the side seam.)
5. Flip ribbon through the opening onto the other side of the skirt, the right side. Done.
valance skirt down, one to go. Now they'll match my spring hand towel!
Do you have any sewing repurposing happening this spring?
