Lazy Dazy Weekend

Hope everyone had a Fantabulous weekend. It was a lazy dazy one around Casa M. I even chose sleeping in over my run this Sunday morning. Too bad I didn't choose sleeping over all the eating a did.
Yup, That is pretty much what I ate all weekend :P



I did get a few fun projects done. I sewed a little tea towel from some scrap fabric I had. I haven't sewed in awhile and the lovely squiggly lines can attest to that.
Not too shabby eh??


I was also able to cross off : Make a curtain for the loft/office window   from my To Do List
The curtain is very basic but I heart it!

So here is said window that was feeling a little naked and needed some love..... and yes that is the old paint that was hiding under the blind that we removed awhile back but haven't found the time to paint  it so it matches the rest of the wall. That will be a Tuesday naptime job.



We had an old shower tension rod that was hanging around and it fit perfectly in the window (I can be resourceful when I need to be)  I than wemt through all the fabric that I had and chose this Dot one by "Dwell Studio"



I ironed an inch foldon each side and the bottom of the curtain.
I then folded each fold  over again so each side would have a more finished look.
I then sewed along each fold.
For the top of the curtain I measured 5 inches for the fold. (wide enough for the rod to slide through. and sewed a seam along the bottom up them fold


Voila a cute simple curtain

Here is my loft office (I still need to cover my chair)



Right now I am tying a ribbon around it to see outside during the day. I think it looks pretty cute!


And thats what I did this weekend. How about you, what did you get up to this weekend?


XOXO
