Sewing Curtains for The Kitchen

   I realize that moving into a new place requires a whole new determination to make it feel like home. This place that Jonathan and I have moved into is no exception and just recently, over these past two days I've been able to start putting up random objects to make things feel more comfortable. In no way is this house decorated in the latest trends or worthy of any interior design awards but we're making do with what we have and that's the fun of this whole adventure.

   This morning I randomly found some stowed away curtain fabric so I decided it would be a great time to attempt making very basic ones for the kitchen.
So I put on some music and with no plan in mind began cutting and sewing away.
I ended up just adding a simple inverted box pleat sort of strip at the bottom of the curtain. Very basic but nice.
Once they were both sewn I hung them up and took a look at my handiwork. Obviously nothing amazing but to me having a simple hand made item in this places makes it feel like it belongs to me just a little bit more. In the words of my husband, "They'll  work.
