I loved her design, but I thought maybe it might be a little too labor intensive. So, I made a couple of mock-ups.
I measured the distance from the top of the design to the edge of the curtain, and kept that consistent.
By keeping these three spots measured and uniform, everything else will be uniform. I feel like I’m pretty good at eye-balling a straight line, so I did not worry about using a level on the straight parts. Also, I’m not that concerned about it being perfect!!
After I got it all pinned down I pondered how I was going to hold to design in place. Originally I planned on using the iron-on hem tape I used before to apply the ribbon. But, as I was folding the ribbon for the design, I realized that would not work since both sides of the ribbon were exposed. I toyed with sewing it down, for about two seconds, and then I decided glue would be the best bet. Yes, I said glue!!
Thanks again for your encouraging words throughout my master bedroom redo!! Lots of little things to finish up in the next couple of days and cleaning everything up (if you could only see the sides of the room not in the pictures!!). I can’t wait to show you the finished product on Thursday!!
