I found little fleur de lis clips on clearance at Hobby Lobby and wanted to use them. I thought they would look best with a butterfly pleat curtain and here is where the trouble begins. I looked everywhere for butterfly pleat tape to no avail. You can find it online, but I really didn't want to wait for it. I did find a regular pleat tape at Hancock's though (on clearance for 10 cents a yard!) so I decided to try and make it work.
I measured out the length and width of my fabric and sewed the pleat tape across the top following the directions. Here's where I threw out the pinch pleat directions. I really only used it to help me get neat and even pleats. I gathered five pleats and stitched them together then I skipped the next four and left them flat. So I had to hand stitch each pleat which took for-e-ver at least all my favorite shows are on!
This room is so tiny it's impossible to photograph. I decided to paint the walls a cognac color called Georgian Leather. It's not quite as pumpkin-y as it looks in the pictures. My imperial trellis plan failed so I pulled the cognac color from the details in the rug. Although I must admit I've been considering giving the trellis another go... I'm a glutton for punishment.
