First project: New Curtains

Posted 01-11-2010 at 10:17 PM by mcair (Rocket's Renovation)

We are almost ready to start on the new curtains. I have the material and lining and am just waiting for some new elastic sliders. I ordered them today from Airstream so they should be here by the end of the week. I will post before and after photos plus some detail pictures of the actual sewing.
