When it’s my own room, I pretty much want it “done yesterday” so I end up taking a lot of shortcuts. Some of those shortcuts crash and burn, but others end up fine. This set of curtains is one of the latter. I needed some curtains for my window, and lately I’ve really felt the need to add some orange to my room. So I got myself a piece of material that wouldn’t fray, a little glue and a pair of scissors and set about making a set of curtains that only took a few minutes.
