Last Saturday Jason + I went over to my parent's house in hopes my mom could teach us how to use a sewing machine. What I thought was going to be a 2-3 hour project turned into a 6 hour endeavor that kept us at it until 1:30 in the morning. My mom was such a trooper! She not only taught us how to use the sewing machine but helped us make these beautiful curtains. I'm so proud of our first sewing project. I learned that sewing a seam in a straight line is a lot more difficult than I thought. I settled on the idea that all the little bumps add character. I can't wait to make something else, because practice makes perfect. I found the fabric really cheap here. We also managed to score these rods at Ross for $11.99.
