Blackout-Lined Curtains (for the Nursery)

This was my splurge.

I know, I know, you fabric people are all too familiar with the price of good fabric. It can get down right expensive...especially when you need 12 yards of it. 
But, whatever. I was thrifty in other areas of the room, so surely that justifies it?!?!?
(I found the fabric HERE, if you're interested.)

I won't bore you with a tutorial on how I made these. I simply followed Allison's tutorial from House of Hepworths. It was seriously easy, guys. If you can iron and sew a straight stitch, then you can do this. I promise.
(Note: Although Allison used a bed sheet, I opted to use actual black-out liner...$5.99 a yard at Hobby Lobby. I knew this would be worth it in the end...in a nursery...with daytime sleeping.)

This is how they turned out.

'Right proud, I must say.

And, that chair.
*sigh* I can't get enough of it.

It's hard to believe, I'll soon be in it...with a baby in my arms.

Pin It Now!
