One of my Summer goals was to replace the youngest daughter's curtains.
navy blue ones were handed down from when her room was her brother's.
Years ago I added a ribbon trim to feminize it slightly. But the time
had come. The navy had turned grey on the outside, faded by the sun.
Her new curtains are re-made from an Ikea bed spread found in the "As
Is" section. She was quite excited about the bright pink. I love
Ikea's curtain rings with clips. It meant I just needed to sew two rectangles (with deep hems to give them weight). And yes, the youngest really does have such a beautiful view from her window.
To deter the inevitable fading from the room's south exposure, I added a lining. It's actually an old bed sheet passed on to me by my parents.
