Crocheting Curtains!

IMG_7719I’ve been doing quite a bit of crocheting this winter and thought I would share one of my projects with you! I’m making curtains for my back door  window.

IMG_7729I was volunteering at the library sorting donated books and noticed this vintage 1970s craft book in the discard box. The cover make it yourself–the uncapitalized title, the orange-red color pallet, the gorpy haircuts—“Ah!” I thought, “A Keeper!”– Pure dee, back-to-the-land era, do-it-yourself gold.

I paged through it quickly and found that it had not the usual granny square vests, odd-looking stuffed animals, and chunky hat and scarf sets but some really nice lace and thread-work patterns.

You've got to love that title, right man?

I’d been looking for some new curtains for the backdoor, but didn’t like the machine-made net I was finding, so this project caught my eye. I decided, why not make my own curtains? I figured I could lengthen them with one of the lace edgings if needed.

One person’s trash is indeed another’s treasure! Begonia

    I love it! I love 1970’s vintage, even though I was born in that decade. I am vintage era too. I would have hugged this book if I found it. I can’t wait to see your finished curtains. My home is decorated in a lot of 1970’s vintage.
