Sometimes those cute little details we like to add to sewing projects are strictly for looks.
Just for the fun of it.
Just for the love of details.
Just for that ever important cuteness factor.
But not always.
Occasionally there’s an honest to goodness, logistically legitimate reason. Which may or may not resemble one of the following:
- Didn’t buy enough fabric
- Need/Want/Have to add one more color/pattern to the mix
- Anything made with one fabric is boring
- Had to make something out of those remnants
- Needed an excuse to add trim
- $ Budget $
- Up for a challenge
- Saw it on Pinterest
In the case of this shower curtain it was a combination of trying to stay within a budget combined with a healthy dose of just for the sake of…fun, cuteness and details.
This play room curtain started out with a discontinued fabric remnant that wasn’t long enough to make our curtain. We added the center band of cartoon animals bordered by the orange dotted ribbon to extend our length.
This one was all about the cuteness factor and the love of details.
That and the fact that I got to use 5 different fabrics to make this curtain!
Top to bottom: brown faux leather, tiny turquoise plaid piping (hard to see), houndstooth, repeat of turquoise plaid bordering the green chenille with the orange dot at the bottom.
What do you think? Could a cute little horizontal band of fabric be just right touch for your next project?
