The Seam Ripper is My Friend

The seam ripper is my friend – or that is what I am trying to convince myself.  My husband has been working on my quilting room for the past two weeks.  The wall colors is a sand tone.  My curtain fabric for my room was teal with spools of thread.  It was perfect until it clashed with the wall color.  As I was organizing my fabric for the new room, I came across a couple of yards of fabric that would work great with the wall color.  In 15 minutes, I whipped up this curtain, only to find that it didn’t have any “bunch” or “puff” factor.  Since I made these reversible, I can salvage some extra fabric and make this curtain only one sided.  Thus, if I say it enough, maybe it will be true — “The seam ripper is my friend…”

  1. Yes, I have learned to “love” my seam ripper as a friend. That way, I don’t get to frustrated when I have to take out stitches.

    Thanks for your kind words on my Poinsettia Fiesta quilt. 🙂

  2. Hahaha. Well, at least it’s a really pretty stripe!

  3. Hi Angie, I don’t know what I would do without my seam ripper! My favorite is the Clover with a white handle. I also recently painted my sewing room with a sandy color. Now, I have no curtains and not much time to make any.
    (Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.)

  4. Yes, a seam ripper is definitely a sewer’s best friend. 🙂 Cute curtain!

  5. I was away in England & Wales. For a curtain/valance you want to use 1 1/2 to 2 x the width of the window for the valance. That is what gives you the gathered or “pouf’ factor.
    Call me next time.
