Nursery curtains

Update: My curtains were featured on Just Beckause!!! I was so excited to see my curtains were featured on a darling post about ruffles. 

 I picked up a pair of black curtains at my favorite store...{Target} for $17.99 for the pair. I knew they needed something so I hung them and waited for the inspiration. I was in the living room cleaning one day and started looking at the curtains hanging in there. 
Started thinking about how I wanted to change them and boom, like a ton of bricks. I grabbed the scissors and started cutting the black and white demask off.
I used embroidery floss and a long scrapbooking needle, tied a knot on one end and stitched an in and out stitch the length of the fabric
pulled the floss tight to ruffle as desired. and tied a knot on the finishing end. 

Next, I pinned the ruffles to the curtains in three rows. (the ruffles weren't long enough so I had to use multiple pieces on each row) 
With having multiple ruffles on each row I had to cut the extra fabric and floss and retie a knot. 
I then went to my sewing machine and sewed each ruffle to the curtain.
I love how they turned out! Just the girlie touch they needed.
