Rain, rain, go away. While I wait frustrated for the spring and now summer rains to end so I can start my renovations, I have been slowly preparing myself to become a seamstress, a carpenter, an upholsterer, and of course a designer. Designer is my favorite of all occupations, but I could spend all my days picking out fabrics and vinyls, flooring, and patterns. In the end, someone is also going to have to learn to sew and it's probably going to be me. Probably.... I mean, it's unlikely that there REALLY is a sewing fairy who makes curtains in the night or that someone (like my neighbor who keeps cutting my front yard because he's awesome!) is going to come along and do it for me. So if I want these adorable Pinch Pleat Curtains in a yet to be determined color and pattern that will match my dark blue Turquoise vinyl dinette bench seats with white piping, I'm going to need some help. Hey YouTube, hit me with your wand, cause I have not a clue. But wait, these instructions look promising. I can almost see myself doing that.

  1. Oh the video is a huge find! Something I can get a start on now! You're fighting the rain and I'm fighting the sun and heat! Thanks!

  2. Thanks for the comment. Can I link to your blog "Tallulah Belle" for the restoration of your Shasta? It's a beauty with lots of originals intact and that beautiful birchwood interior. What year is it?

  3. Wow! Love the blog. I've just bought a 70's vw campervan and need to do the interior - can SO relate to the curtain thing :)
