Nothing New - Ribbon Trimmed Drapes



These are nothing new, but I've been admiring them for a while.  I decided to just do it.  Each panel took about an hour to attach two rows of ribbon, iron and hang the drapes.


P.S. There's my new ottoman.  Should I paint the legs white?




My panels are twin sheets from Target. They wash beautifully. The ribbon is in navy from Michael's. I used Stitch Witchery to attach.  I made the rod pocket by folding over the top hem.

  10. I like the ribbon, I've been thinking about doing the same, if I can't find fabric for new curtains -- I liek that it adds extra pop to simple curtains
