Hi everyone, The material I found for the cabin, here in Florida, was almost identical to the old ones, Denise liked the curtains that had been in the cabin and wanted the new ones to duplicate them. I had never made curtains before, so I ordered an additional 4 yards, in case of mistakes and matching patterns (material is a plaid pattern), I do not sew, so it was a new experience for me, but I layed the material on my Mom's (large) bedroom floor and did all my measuring, matching up lines in the material and cutting there. I made curtains for the bedrooms from some old office drapes my niece gave me, the drapes had 2 linings, just pinned them and cut off the tops and hemmed them to fit the bedroom windows, these are ok I guess. - Mom
The valance on our front door.
Here are the curtains that she made for both bedrooms. They are HEAVY! Thank goodness, because those are the original drafty windows. See that TV? My Grandparents bought that for my Uncle when he went to Viet Nam in 1964! It's color TV - ahhhhh, what luxury to have a 5" TV in the bedroom. We only get one channel in the bedroom.
