Tackle It Tuesday - curtain

To do: Find a curtain for the baby's room.
Progress: Failed! After checking around at a few stores, I couldn't find anything that I liked.
New task: Make my own curtain!

The inspiration piece (the baby bedding/quilt):

I found a GREAT Columbus Day sale at Joanne's and was able to find the colors I needed on the clearance table. Clearance fabrics were an additional 50% off. Woohoo! Since I love ribbon, I knew I wanted to incorporate ribbon somewhere, but not too much since it is a boy's room. :)
(The most expensive part of this curtain was the blue thread! Crazy.)

The supplies:

After getting my kiddo to bed on Saturday night, I pulled out the machine and got to work!

The final product:

I'm really excited and happy with how it turned out. By the end of the month, our goal is to have the room cleaned out (boxes put in the attic) and we can move on to the finishing touches (i.e. crib set up, quilt hung on the wall, etc). Then, mid-November, with the Lord's grace, we'll be bringing home baby boy!
