The picture doesn't do the color justice. It's a teal. It's the same teal that's in our master bedroom. You know how my heart is drawn to this color family! I snatched it right up. The moment the boys were in bed that night, I got started right away. (that's a miracle in this house to get to a project the same day as purchase!)
I took it out of the box and laid it out on the floor. I folded it in half and cut.
I ironed a seam, twice. Folded in the edge, ironed. Folded it again and ironed. I definitely didn't want the edges to fray and a double hem avoids that.
I went slowly to keep the line as straight as possible. It is truly IMPOSSIBLE for me to sew a straight line, no matter how hard I try. I come close, though, as that's good enough for me.
Here's the dull wall. BLAH!
Here's a bigger view
Here are the curtains up. The lighting was terrible so I took some at night too.
