Just finished my first window curtain/panel...it was just an experiment, so I only made one.

I went to Home Depot and bought a canvas drop cloth. I cut out a 40x90 inch rectangle. Since two of the ends already had seams, I just pinned and sewed seams for the remaining ends that were cut.

After the sewing was done, I mixed acrylic paint with a textile medium and applied it to the canvas with sponges and a stencil.





Unwashed/uncut canvas...






Finished panel...



Making this was really simple and fun. The total time it took for everything (including wash/dry time) was approx 3.5-4 hrs. The paint only took about 15 mins to dry.

I haven't yet sewn the loops for the curtain rod because I'm not sure what style I want yet...but I plan on making the rest next of the panels next weekend when I have the time...

More pics when the rest are made...

Lashes, I can do my own hair I just don;t like to,  projects at home... when I could not find a shower curtain I liked I ended up using drapes from Pier one and Grace loves a good garage or estate sale.
