My Pledge for April

I will buy no fabric for the entire month of April.


No yardage, no fat quarters, no remnants.  None.


It is going to be a very long month…


Do you want to take this pledge to?  Do you need to take this pledge even if you don’t ‘want’ too?  Add this button to your sidebar to help you stay strong and resist the fabric temptation bug.

  2. I love your pledge! I just refused to go to the fabric store, myself. I have established a fabric "library" from which to choose. So much to do...so little time.

  4. Gosh you and your readers are brave... I too couldn't take the pledge - more so my husband - he is so into making doll clothes and we only shop clearance and sales and so we don't get fabrics on a drop dime just when we can find it cheap.... OK so I want or hope to read about your withdrawals for this brave pledge of yours... YOU AMAZE ME....

  5. I am already in withdrawals, LOL! I just have to focus on getting done the projects I have lined out already. No need for more fabric... no need... no need, just lots of wanting, LOL!

  8. Technically I could do this....considering all my fabric is purchased as second hand clothing (to be taken apart later).

  10. Hmmm...good luck in your pledge. My pledge for the past year has been to only buy to finish. Today is was 2/3-yard for a binding. I don't feel too bad about that. I will cheer you on, though.

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
