I bought a curtain rod on Friday and I've had the burlap and some accent ribbon for a while now...just have to fire up the sewing machine.

I've seen a few versions at various blog linky parties. There's one in particular that I quite liked, but I didn't bookmark it and I can't seem to find it again. Sigh...when will I learn?
Wish me luck!
