Hello dear readers~
When we moved into our home, we really didn’t have a lot of money left to decorate it. I sewed some curtains and other items. Believe me, my sewing expertise is limited to straight seams. I’ll bet I would be a fantastic pillowcase maker! Anything I did was easy, but somehow it turned out fine.
I had one trouble spot, however. Above our bed we have a large wall with a tall ceiling. We could not afford to purchase a painting or framed print, so I had to get creative. I happen to love the home decorator fabrics at the fabric stores. They are used for draperies, upholstery, and bedspreads, and have a nice weight to them.
I found a printed material that matched the color in our duvet. I also found a solid color for a “band or frame” around the outside of the printed material. *See photo.
Once I made a hem all the way around it, I hung it with cafe rings from a curtain rod. (the “frame” was attached like a silky binding on a blanket)
Simple~ and it solved the problem!
I’ve also used small, throw-sized quilts in the same way….hanging them with café rings from a curtain rod. That’s the no-sew version!!
Thanks for visiting!
