Promise not to laugh?

 Picture property of Jen at TaterTots and Jello

I was over at one of my favorite blogs the other day, Tatertots and Jello. Jen is Fabulous!! She has so many great projects and everything she makes turns out Beautifully! Just look at this topper she made...I am in awe...and guess what, it's no sew. I love it! Ok now here is where the whole promise not to laugh thing comes in, this is my first curtain anything.

Now, the picture is awful, I know. And it's not even hanging on a rod, just pinned up there so I can tweak it, so the top part will normally stand obviously and not fall. I am not sure where it's going to go yet but I have plenty of places I am thinking about.

See the pretty falling part, ignore it, it won't look like that. I took some Burlap I had bought awhile back, and scraps from the shower curtain I cut up for recovering my chairs. I can't wait to try this a second time around exactly as Jen did. If you want to see Jen's tutorial, it's awesome, go here.

Stop Laughing!!!!! Ok you can laugh. Stop over and see Jen's here if you haven't already!

I think they're cute too! But I know what you mean, sometimes don't turn out quite like you expected them too. It happens to me way too often!:)LOL
