Wet-Felted Studio Curtains- Part 2 of 2


One completed curtain...


...with sunlight shining through it.


Another finished valance...


...and one window-sized curtain.


A close-up view of the inclusions, back-lit by the sun...


...including a bit of an unfinished crochet project that I found in a thrift store.


A slightly thicker curtain, made in a similar fashion, was made for the room next-door.


Three of the four finished studio curtains.


As I was working on the curtains for the studio...

...I decided to make an additional one for the room next door, as well.

I guess I figured, "In for a penny, in for a pound!!" :)

It's a slightly thicker twin to the one in my studio...

...and these two oddly placed windows were once niches for room air-conditioning units...

...in the days before 'central air'.

I think you'll agree that the curtains look best with sunlight shining through them...

...but regardless of the time of day, they certainly have made a nice change in the studio.

You amaze me with all the projects you do! I've been contemplating curtains for a while now. But's that's all the farther I've gotten. Thanks for the inspiration.

Heather Woollove said...

Becky--I'm happy to pass on the inspiration. I actually got the idea from a knitter friend of mine who made kitchen curtains for herself nearly a year ago! :)

I love the simplicity of these Heather.. and with the sun shining through I can just imagine how beautiful they must be, with the lovely gentle light coming through

Deborah--Thanks! I do like the luminous aspect of them. There are times of day when they actually 'glow'! :)

Dawn Edwards said...

Heather Woollove said...

Dawn--I think that they require a personal visit (and the making of several projects) to really appreciate them in their fullest. When do you arrive?!?! :) XXO-

You've a good idea as always. Very spacious and well equipped studio you have. No wonder you're so creative.

I've enjoyed having the filtered light in my studio since I put these up...and they're what gave me the idea to install my new lamp there, and not in another room.
