Rockin' the Pendant Banner

My favorite room in my whole house is my little girls room.

I love being in there because it is so bright and sunny and happy.

When we moved in I was planning on putting up curtains in their room, but over the past year I have gone back and forth between what I wanted to do... I had finally decided that I didn't want to put up curtains because I didn't want to loose any of that yummy light and brightness, but every time I passed by their room it just looked unfinished to me. 

So I decided to use a pendant banner as faux curtains.


I loved pendant banners! I had been racking my brain as to where I could use one in my house so I am so glad that I finally came up with a place for one!

I used paper and then I stitched with my sewing machine around the edges and across the top to create a casing for the paper rope(from World Market) to go through. I love the way it turned out. When you get up close you can see the light coming through the paper where I stitched. 


I am sure somewhere the curtain police are shuddering- but we're kickin' it new school in our house and we are totally rockin' the pendant banner!
