I love Austria… all mountains and castles and cobblestone streets and lederhosen and just general beauty. I especially love Salzburg, the home of the Von Trapp estate (you know, the family from the Sound of Music). That city makes me feel like singing and wearing dresses and splashing fountains…
Anyhow, last week, I got a whole box (a BIG box) of sample curtain panels… that picture shows maybe an eighth of my new stash. When I showed Adam, he said, “Are you going to dress our kids in curtains like Maria on the Sound of Music?” Hahaha!
So the question of the hour is- what do I use these for? I am totally up for making them into clothing… Should I make skirts for Piper Jane? Pants for Burke? Teeny dresses? Do I dare venture into the land of trying to put something grown-up sized together for myself? And do you have any other great ideas? What would you do with this pile of fabric? I should note that they aren’t entire curtains, just curtain samples, so they’re only a couple feet wide. Also, some have prints (like the ones in the picture), but there are lots of solid panels as well (heavy on the velvet, linen and canvas). Help me out, friends!
I can’t wait to hear your ideas!
