I found this adorable pair in a charity shop that's down the road from me. They really take the time to get to know their customers there. It also provides a place for people in the local community to stop and chat and just feel heard and connected. For me, the heritage of a piece of fabric is really important.
Anyway, I teamed the curtains with dusky pink polka dots for the handle - I think I'm going through a polka dot phase right now! There is a soft pleat on both sides for the added fun factor.
The lining was created from a rose coloured fabric that was an offcut from the time I made the shift dress - I just cannot bear to throw fabric away! I added a magnetic snap for easy closure and a large pocket with enough room to put a journal and phone/pens/whatever else you may need in it!
It's really quite sturdy as everything has an extra layer of interfacing on it. And it's comfy too!
I cannot believe how much fun I had making this one!
