I Tamed the Dragon {part deux}

August 29th, 2011

Yes- Finally.  I am here to report on my beautiful new pelmet boxes.

Sorry for the delay.  This past week we had an Earthquake and Hurricane.  Yes- you read that correctly.  The earthquake that shook the majority of the east coast on Tuesday was located about 45 miles outside of the RVA.  And then Saturday, Hurricane Irene had a direct hit about 60 miles away in the opposite direction.  Luckily we sustained no damage with either of the events.  But the Neighbors weren’t so lucky with Irene…

No one was hurt, but the porch was ripped off the front of the house and a few windows were broken.  And if you can believe it, someone actually drove right into the tree today during broad daylight!!  The gentleman ran the stop sign and by the time he looked up, he didn’t have enough time to stop.  I asked my neighbor if he thought the guy was drunk.  I mean who misses the GIGANTIC tree that is blocking the road??

But back to my Pelmet Boxes!

They are Done!!

They took forever to finish because the living room windows were wider than the width of the fabric, forcing me to seam together the sides.  And since I was working with minimal fabric to start with, it was quite a process to get it all to match up seamlessly.

I took the easy route and instead of sewing it all together, I taped it!

So I first cut out each main section and the 2 sides.  Then I used my iron and no sew hem tape to seam the pieces together.

I think I did a pretty darn good job matching the 2 pieces.  Once I finished matching up the other sides, I then stapled the fabric and the batting to the foam boxes I made about 5 months ago! {embarrassing!}

And here is the finished product!

Can you tell where the seams are?
