A ready made Organza Curtain - AND GUMNUTS!!! (For a bit of weight)
What was your inspiration?
I was sick of flies coming inside so I had an inspiration and found an Organza curtain that I had bought for something else -(so long ago I forgot why) - and sewed some Gumnuts (that had been dried, drilled out and holes drilled into them. (I was going to use them for buttons and embellishments on tote bags - I have hundreds!)
The Gumnuts are not as heavy as I thought they would be, I am sitting right beside them, there is a nice breeze blowing the curtain, the nuts are making a noise on the tiled floor - it may send us all around the bend!!!
What are you most proud of?
It looks good. I may even enhance it more by sewing things like flowers, butterflies etc on it in spots. It is functional and if it keeps the flies out then it is doing the job it was intended for!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Sit and think!!! You will generally come up with an idea!!!
