Scarp Fabric Curtain + giveaway winner

Our Scrap Fabric Curtain is complete. :) 
With bits and bobs of any and everything I could find in my sewing stash, 
I ended up with this for my girls room. 

I made this curtain pretty tight at the top. With lots of strips of fabric. I wanted this curtain to be functional, as the window that the scraps are covering looks out into other apartments. I actually think I am going to try and put 3 to 4 more strips in, just to make sure it is private.

I used:
*3 different cotton fabrics
*1 thicker polyester curtain to help with privacy and the sun
 (for all you living in Turkey - I used a white Guneslik)
*1 scarf (which I might want back ;))
*1 button strand

I ripped the fabric into strips of 4 inches.

I cut the ends of my fabric pieces in different ways to give it a little texture.

I tied the fabric like a mens tie - making sure that each piece of fabric that was tied was facing the same direction.

I still have yet to put hooks in each side of the window casing and make a tie so we can pull the curtain back especially in the summer...

(The great thing about this (for those living in Turkey) we didn't have to drill into the cement for this rod we screwed into the side part of the window and it worked perfectly!) 

I am still working on the rest of the room. 
Sewing a bit, painting a bit, rummaging through old frames a bit. :) I have an old cork board that I found the perfect place for... I look forward to showing you as I complete each little part, which might take a bit. ;)

I am thinking about painting a small mural. Here is some inspiration I found from one of the blogs I follow. Talk about INSPIRATION! 

This painting is done by Chrissie @ In His Grace

 I really enjoy Chrissie's art and her blog. If you have time go by and visit! 

Using what I have to create beauty in my little girls room: today it is with scraps of fabric. 

Delighted with the life I have been given.
 Grateful for the talents I have been gifted with. 
Desirous to use my life and talents for the Glory of the King.

This is really cute! I might have to steal your idea - my craft room/office has an open doorway that looks across the hall into our dining room. I was going to hang curtains, but this just feels more crafty ;) Stopping by from Keeping It Simple!

Oh, I love the curtain. I think it's an almost similar one that I just bought from http://fabricbanners.net.au/ last week. That's pretty nice. Also the painting is wonderful, I've tried that a million times but it's quite hard to make something good if you don't have the talent.
