Another Mistreatment...

I just did another mistreatment, and I LOVE IT! I did what I would consider a "first class" Nester Mistreatment. I hope I'm making her proud! I'll show you the results, and then I'll tell you what I did.

I started with a box full of wonderful fabric remnants. My mother in law manages a furntiture store, so when they no longer carry the certain fabrics she has lots of fabulous samples to discard. These are my lastest bins. I have no idea what other stores do with them, but call and ask! I use this fabric for all kinds of fun crafting, but that is another post. Anyway, you have to cut these little labels off the corners. It can be a little tricky, but with a little patience you can get it off without hurting the wonderful FREE fabric.
Then you just put some of the fabrics you like on your sofa, you know all professional like...
And you get yourself a really skinny and cheap curtain rod from Wal-Mart. I already had this one, but it was super cheap, like $3 or something. Then you put these samples on the rod because they already have dowels and holes from hanging in the furniture store. In no time flat you can have a fabulous window treatment and be a member of the Mistreatment Club!
What do you think?

I love it!!! You are so talented, and great at sewing. I recently took up sewing since Christmas. It looks so easy to sew, but it's never as easy as it looks!

Love it, and super neat and easy! I just need about 50 scraps and I think I'd put them in my laundry room, under the over rack that holds my detergent. Great idea!
