Being without a (working) sewing machine I am not usually looking for projects that involve needle and thread. However, the situation was dire, I couldn't find any cute curtains that fit Amelia's new tiny nursery window. And then I found this tutorial. Perfect.

Here is proof that I sewed it by hand. Margaret documented it for me. She has gotten really into photography of late.

And if I can complete this in one afternoon by hand (with three kids), imagine how quickly you could get it done!


  1. Elissa, If you need a sewing machine I can loan you mine... I only sew in the winter for some reason so mine just sits in the closet the rest of the year. Let me know & I would love to bring it out and take a peek at your new upstairs! :)


  2. you are inspiring! I've just started settling into my new place in Three Hills and am loving the possibilities...

    sending hugs to you as you enjoy your lovely home & Onset Island this month, Elissa. Our family vacation starts today in Canmore! So excited :)
    Love you!

  3. You are incredible, Elissa, to be so productive & talented! I hope your traits will rub off on me a bit :)
