sunlight in my windows
Enter: Three identical vintage pillowcases.
Yes. Pillowcases. Because three pretty curtains in a fabric of my choice is a project that let's face it, wouldn't get done until next winter. These pillowcases I had in my closet all ready to go.
I simply looped the closed end over the top of the spring rod and made three evenly spaced stitches with a needle and thread. Which means someday when I have actual curtains, these can be washed and go back on a bed. That made me happy, since I have the sheets and everything to match.
I really like how the sunlight filters through the fabric, since it's a bit thinner. I love the window light we have in our home and didn't want to cover these up with thick curtains. They aren't perfect, but they'll do. And they only cost $2.00. Happiness!
