First of all… let me just say I want a new kitchen. Badly. My kitchen was likely remodeled by previous owners in the 80s. Blonde, low-quality stock cabinets that don’t all match. Ugly formica countertops in a drab beige. Dated hardware. Blech. BUT, we aren’t quite ready to jump into a kitchen remodel so I’ve been “restyling” little details every so often just to suppress my serious distaste. In fact, I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to my dream kitchen…. someday. 🙂
I used the graphic to create a vinyl stencil with my Silhouette machine and used a marker to stencil it onto the fabric. And it was done!

I found the perfect sack for the job. I cut through the seam and sewed a pocket at the top for the rod – that’s it! I even left the cut edges raw. I trimmed some strips from the leftover cafe curtain fabric, tied them up and voila!
