Would you take these apart & sew the stripe or solid for the bottom? First attempt at making drapes!
April 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Ok so during my first attempt at making drapes I 'may' have miscommunicated how much fabric I needed to the lady @ the fabric store. Went back to buy more & it was gone. Of course.
Soo...I didn't know what else to do but to put solid panels in the middle. There is one more solid panel that's not up.
What would you do with these??

You know besides take off horrendous shower curtain hooks & put up drapery hooks. I know! I know!
I'm not done ok.

not sure it this will help - but I would consider adding a border with each opposing fabric - or a contrasting border??? Great job by the way!

I think I would buy a double rod. I'd use the striped fabric panels as "stationary" side panels, and use the solid color under them to be closed only when you need the privacy/room darkening.

I would redo them using both fabrics in each panel, so instead of looking like an oops, you will have a stunning creation!
