Cute Ruffle Curtain with Tie Backs

I am toying with the idea of making curtains like these:
For my sewing room.  I made the ones in the picture for a custom order.  The valance measures 44 inches wide and 20 inches long.  The tiebacks are 1.5 inch grosgrain ribbon. 

Decisions, decisions...What do you think?

The curtain is available at A Vision to Remember Etsy Shop

How to Sew a Ruffle pillow with Ruffle Fabric

I have had a couple requests lately to make some ruffle pillows.  The one pictured above is a standard size pillow sham.  I used 1 inch ruffle fabric.

Here's how to do it.
1. decide the size you want your pillow
2. You will need to cut a total of 3 pieces of fabric.  For a Euro pillow sham I cut the front piece 27 inches square, 1 back piece I cut 27x13 inches, and the other I cut 27x20 inches.  That way you can have an envelope type place to stuff your pillow into.
3. Make sure to cut your fabric 1 inch bigger all the way around from the size of pillow you are wanting.  The coral pillow I did ruffle fabric front and back. 
4.  Pin the front and back pieces into place with the right sides touching.
5. Sew around the perimeter.  I like to use my walking foot when I sew with ruffle fabric.  It seems to stretch a lot and the walking foot helps to prevent the stretching while sewing.

6.  Clip the corners of the pillow so that when you turn it right sides out the corners look better.
7. Turn the pillow right side out and check to make sure that all your ruffles stayed in the right spot.  If not, then unpick that spot and sew it again.  I swear that every pillow I make I end up unpicking a couple ruffles :)


8.  Put your pillow into the pillow sham and ENJOY!
