Horizontal Stripes

Ever since I saw Mary McDonalds Black & White horizontal striped drapery I knew thats what I wanted in my new office.

Thus sending me on a hunt for horizontal striped fabric.  Well folks let me tell you I came up empty handed.  But I did find quite a few pictures of rooms with  horizontal drapery.  I love the drama and movement that it adds to the space.

So I did what any other intelligent person would do, buy vertical striped fabric and turn it on the horizontal.  Only problem with that idea- fabric is only 54″ wide and I need 108″ panels.  So I had to sew two of them to make a complete panel.  These are not lined yet or hemmed but I was so excited to get them sewn together I hung them up immediately.

And I still have the other panel to sew- but *sigh* I ran out of fabric and had to re-order more.  So I wait…….. BUT in the meantime THESE came in the mail today!!!  and I can not wait to show you what I do with them.

We’re off to visit family this weekend AND Im working on a little treat I will share with you all soon!!!  (Im just full of teasers today arent I?)
