Window Treatments a la Pattiwagon

I don't have any experience making curtains, but I have become a somewhat accomplished seamstress in the past year, and I have some great equipment.  So I didn't hesitate when my friend Jackie asked me to make curtains and some other decor for her nursery.  (After all, it was really for Bates.  And who wouldn't want to do something sweet for such a sweet boy?  Check out pictures on Jackie's blog.  You will melt.)  Curtain making was basically a lesson in precise measuring, clean cutting, and straight sewing.  Three things I can always practice.  It also gave me something to do during March Madness  Sadness.

I was happy with how they turned out.  So happy that I think I'll have to work on my own window treatments.  As Casa de Pattiwagon is sorely lacking in that department.
