My take on Ruffled Burlap Curtains

I was head over heels in LOVE with Savannah’s burlap curtains so naturally, I had to do my own version. I used her tutorial really closely but I did my ruffles a little differently because I don’t have a ruffle foot for my machine. ūüôĀ Sad day! Although you can make your own girly ruffles without a ruffle foot.¬†
Savannah found a great video on how to do it HERE!
I pleated my strip of white fabric about every inch or so and pinned it into place.
Like Savannah’s, I did 3 ruffles at the bottom of the burlap curtain panel.
I wanted to add one more ruffle at the top. I had everything pinned into place before I sewed anything down to make sure I liked the look of it. 
Then I sewed it all down! So easy!
All hung up in the dining room!
I love how these type of ruffles hang. 
**Update: I’ve removed the top ruffle to¬†accommodate¬†the my new valance above the window. I used the removed fabric to make bow tie backs!
So, that’s my take on it! If you have a ruffle foot or if you want to make them this way,¬†Savannah’s version is absolutely gorgeous, or you can do the pleats if you like that look!¬†
Don’t you just love them!? I DO! Thanks for the idea Savy!
