New curtains!

I've finally finished the new curtains for the 65 Safari! I had a blast on eBay and etsy looking for vintage fabrics, bedspreads, sheets, whatever fabric I could find. There's even a seller on etsy with vintage pompom tassel trim. Who could live without that?! I tried a couple of new, retro prints but they just didn't look quite right. I took a few pictures but the sun is so bright, 106 degrees, that they didn't turn out very good. The drapery lining sure does its job though! Anyway, they're not your perfectly pleated drapes but they're fun and bright! I'm really pleased with the curtain/couch color combo. And the elephants, gotta love double polyester knit elephants!

The pom-poms along the bottom bump it up a notch.
The blue sofa and blue curtains I like best....but that green, orange, yellow kitchen looks like it coulda shoulda been original

Thanks! I'm really excited about them. I'm online now looking for something to recover 4 leg-o-matic chairs I found on craigslist. Those along with a folding wooden table will serve as our front dinette for awhile. The front of the trailer is empty so we'll have the folding table and chairs for day and sleeping bags for the kids at night.

To the right of the sink is a big hole.
I framed a neat old dishtowel to cover it but haven't got it hung up right yet. The PO had a microwave there, but I pulled it as soon as we got it home.

How funny! The blue flowers were a big sheet, the bath door is obviously a bedspread, but the elephants and kitchen were just fabric. I really like the orange.

Janie Q, that is the same thing I thought when I looked at the pictures...I had a shift out of that pattern. Remember the shift? Too funny!

Reddoor,
Do you need anymore of the fabric that you have over the kitchen sink? It's a top sheet and I bought one a while back and have never used it. In fact it might be both the top and bottom.
If you want it let me know and I'll send it to you.
Meredith

One more thing...
can you post a picture of the device ( I can't think of it's name right now) that you put on the curtain to slide on to the old curtains tracks?

Sure! I'd love to have some more if the price is right
It would go great with the old Texas ware trays I got today.

My curtains have a track with sliders in them. I got some lightweight pin hooks and slid them between the curtain and some heavy twill tape. I bought a few replacement sliders from vintagetrailersupply and they also had the hooks.
