I finally finished the drapes! I have to say that I am very proud of myself. This is definitely the most difficult project completed to date. The tutorial I followed wasn't that tricky, but doing everything four times (made four panels) and trying to be precise was exhausting.

Enough already! Here they are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love them and sort of can't believe that I made them. But believe it!
