Yarn Trim for Curtains

I have officially gone crazy. I got tired of my dead end job as a cleaner and decided to quit next month! I think that there is something else for me out there and I am going to do everything I can to get there. There will be a money issue thought, but I think it could be worth it. But hey, good news for my readers – This means I will have to DIY just about everything in my life! Wohoo!

A few weeks ago, while browsing through the list of blogs I read, I stumbled upon Love Meagan’s tassel trimmed curtains. They look awesome and I immediately decided I wanted to do something similar to my curtains. Was I going to go out and buy the trim? I think we all know the answer to that by now -That damn trim was going to be DIYed out of trash, tears and desperation.

I decided to use my old worn out skinny black jeans, they served me well for over 5 years and made my butt look like heaven, so they deserved to be given a second life. I also used some black yarn I had laying around.

I cut strips from the jeans to be used a a base for my trim. I used zig zag stitch to prevent fraying around the edges.

Then I started to make the yarn trim. I fastened it with my sewing machine and made loops as I went on with the machine. This took some time, but it was fairly easy to do.

For some added sass I also decided to add pom poms to my trim. I they are the same type of pom poms that I made for this top and my pom pom detachable collar.

I hand stiched the trim onto my curtains. I like the black with that pink color! The tie backs are from some butt ugly tassel necklaces that I bought on sale.

Btw, this is my orange seed plant! I’m going to re-pot this in the spring and put it out on the balcony during the summer. It smells like oranges!
