Nana Judy is appalled

What can you possibly do with a pile like this? Get inspired by Nester!!!I had a set of Chocolate brown Silk panels in my bedroom. I hated them, BORING! I decided to make them fabulous a la The Nester. The woman can do anything with nothing. She truly has a gift.

I laid out the panel and cut a 20" length of the striped silk.

I then Hot glued it to the top seam of the panel. Yes, I said Hot glue. (It has to be high temp glue, low temp will melt in the sun. )Yep, I am hot gluing silk together. Shoot me.
Make sure that you glue the extra around on the back.

Then I took a length of ridiculously expensive fringe and hot glued that on. It matched a throw pillow on the bed and is so fabulous.
Cut and glue it to the back.
See how fabulous they are??!? I love fringe, can you see it on everything that doesn't move? I will have a pillow made, if I find a fringe I like, just to own it. Right now we are up to 13 total pillows on the bed. I have a bead fringe on the lamp shades and now the drapes. Paint boy better not sleep in!
Nana Judy wants me to let y'all know- I do know how to sew. She taught me at a very young age and I could have sewed this entire project (like Sippy Cups); however, it would be 3 weeks from never before I finished.
Nana Judy even offered to sew them for me so that she would not be embarrassed by my hot glue gun. I wanted it done NOW!

If any of you need any brown, blue and gold tassel fringe, I have a yard and a half left. I will send it to you. If there's a bunch of y'all that want it, I will have J and C pick.

Wow! Your curtains turned out beautiful! I love brown and blues together. I might have to use your idea of the shorter piece of fabric being on top with the fringe.

Thanks for sharing them!

Have a blessed day!

Those look unbelievable! I am a hot glue junkie myself. I don't know how to sew!

They look beautiful! I think you are very clever and never knew there was high temp glue. That would have helped me with my Christmas wreath that kept losing it's decorations because of the sun! There is always next year!
