The Old Fashioned Pfaff 130

   Yesterday, I sewed curtains for Elliott's room.  Well, really I did an Ikea Hack on a pair of Aina Curtain Panels.  I spruced 'em up with a little charcoal fabric and twill tape.  And they look good!  I sewed them on this baby:

   I'm not the greatest seamstress ever known to the blog world.  In fact, I'm really no good at sewing.  This is because my Mom is really, really good at sewing.  Whenever something needs to be done, she 'helps' me out.  What that usually means is that I brainstorm the idea, choose the fabric, start sewing, get frustrated within twenty minutes and let her finish it for me.  She's a perfectionist when it comes to sewing, which is a good thing, I guess.

Although my curtains are not perfect, I did manage to do a pretty good job.  Nice straight seams, everything pressed.  I surprised myself a little bit.

I can't wait to show you my sewing success.
