Over the weekend I managed to get the swags for my bedroom windows sewn up. I had originally wanted to use the pretty red crewel fabric I found, but, I decided I wanted swags and there was not enough of the crewel. So...I settled on this red Jacobean and lined them with small checks. I always line my swags with a complimentary fabric...I think it gives them a little extra zip.
It's been slow...getting this room together. I'll be playing with these two small swags for awhile...until they cooperate and lay right.
I like to use swags because they cover the shades when they are rolled up, but they don't block the light during the day.
Do you make your own curtains...drapes....swags? I have never bought a curtain for our home...ever.
It's just too much fun to do it yourself...and the possibilities are endless...I have yards of fabric waiting their turn.
Hope your week is going great!
Enjoy the day,
