Ike and Henry have had to make do with a black shower curtain draped over their curtain rod for, um, over two years now. No more! Sewing these curtain panels took the better part of my day, and I listened to at least three episodes of This American Life on my iPod. Maybe four.
These were made from a piece of Finnish fabric Dean brought me several years ago. Since I used another piece of Finnish fabric for the circle skirts I made for the girls a couple weeks ago, it’s funny to me that both pieces sat in stash for so long and then met such different fates. (I think I have two more Finnish pieces. Both are small cuts with large-scale cartoon drawings on them, and I have no idea what I’ll do with them.) After I had trimmed the ends of this piece to straighten them, I used every last bit of it. It was satisfying that it was a perfect amount of yardage.
I like how the fabric goes so well with the ocean in Ike’s Legend of Zelda poster. 🙂
