Design Problem:

Set of Sliding Glass Doors with a lot of light
Want Privacy at Night
Want Sun Reduction during the Summer Months

Full Length Lined Draperies
Use existing white wooden rod

Design Opportunity:
Provided a Waffle Weave fabric
*Has too much yellow/beige coloration for the current room

Add Raw Edge Patches to Cover most of the Waffle Weave fabric
Use Blackout Lining for Privacy & Light Reduction

Waffle Weave Fabric

Miscellaneous white fabrics 


  1. That is some nice fabric! Very awesome texture.

  2. Good to see you blogging again. I've missed your blog.

  3. My house was built for the gain of passive solar. In the winter it is great, but in the summer not so much. Several years ago I made some warm window shades to cover the higher clerestory windows and it was just the perfect solution. Now I've added them to the bedroom windows and have figured out a way to add one of these shade to a slide-by window. Being set up for quilting has it's advantages for home dec sewing.

    1. People think drapes are just something hanging on the window but they really have a greater purpose in a home. I love drapes, personally.

  4. Good to see you blogging again. I don't do FB very much.

  5. It was great to see you posting again, Debra! You were on my mind this week for some unknown reason, and then there you were! Where'd you find that drapery fabric? My son-in-law was trying to figure out how to darken Max's bedroom for naptime and also to provide some cooling in the summer.
