Ikea to the rescue again...

...there I was wandering around my second home (IKEA)...you just never know what you'll find...I found twin size flat sheets for $1.99 each...WHAT!? I bought 4 packs and

...turned them into this...soft summer drapes for my terrace doors...I love the way they look when the wind blows...don't look too closely to the terrace...it's a mess.

  3. completely clever indeed. it's true, what the blogger above said about there being more fabric options sometimes in sheets than in curtains pre-made. i love the length too! i love curtains, if they are long, drippy all over the floor. very rich looking but light for summer air. great job on those, seriously!

  5. What a fabulous buy! At those prices you can change your decor all the time. And using them on the terrace doors is perfect. It looks like a beach house. Cool and crisp and light. I love looking for bargains like that on linens for all sorts of things. Even have made a robe from a velvet patchwork throw that was on clearance.

  6. i really like that look.

    lately a lady i sew with here has been buying curtains/sheets for low, low prices and turning them into various clothing items. i've always appreciated seeing and doing this type of thing.
