Make Do and Mend Mondays

I wanted to share my drapes I made for the guest room but the photos are not the best quality.  I started with a $2 thrift store purchased Queen sized white sheet, and 2 spools each of orange and bright green ribbon.  I have ribbon leftover and am debating trimming along the hem with the layered ribbon just as I did down the inside edge.  I apologize for the poor photo quality.  Nothing I did seemed to make it better so what I have will have to suffice.
Ignore the date on my photo.  Everytime the batteries are removed the camera reverts back to that date.  Crazy, huh?  The ribbon here doesn't look very pretty but it is a fresh citrus color.  A nice bright orange and almost lime green.

 I think the lighting outside was part of the problem with the shots indoors.  The white lines on the curtains is the shade behind the drapes showing through.  I had nothing but trouble getting these shots.  The edges wouldn't stay nice and straight for the photo even, lol.  However, the curtains look nice in person and I am pleased as punch to have so little in my pretty new drapes.

Summer light...that is what did it. :-) The curtains are great and what a bargain. Did you already have the ribbon or was that a thrift shop bargain too? Looks very summer-y.
