  17. Sara says:

    Fab! Did you use a vertical stripe on the bias to achieve the diagonal look? If so, can you source that green/white striped fabric?

    • effortless says:

      It was a plain striped fabric that was cute on the bias. I purchased it at the Duralee outlet. I don’t have a pattern name for it. Sorry.

  18. Kelly says:

    Love it. Can you share the name of your seamstress. INVU just went bankrupt, and I have some amazing fabric that I would like panels and some romans made from.

It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
