i finally finished sewing curtains for the baby room! i decided to use the six-minute circle technique and just make one really big circle out of the same inspiration fabric i’ve used all over the room. i originally had these elaborate curtain hanging plans that had to do with swing arms, but in the end, decided to go with simple for now. the curtains could still be used with swing arms, but maybe i’ll wait until my dad’s next visit and get his help designing those mechanisms. i still wanted a fairly quick way to get the curtains out of the way without installing giant tie-back thingies, so i added a tiny loop of elastic to the middle of the circle on each panel and two tiny hooks at the corners of the window and so when it’s opened it looks something like this:
it’s still kind of a pain to reach the hook that’s behind the chair, but it works okay for now and i love the way the one large circle looks. i also did a lot of work on the glider (the chair you see pictured above) this weekend and hope to share “after” photos with you sometime soon.
