So I have 3 options here.... I want to apologize ahead of time for the poor photo quality. This project has knocked the breath out of me. It has thrown me head over heels into spring fever and there is no turning back.
Option 1. Ruffle the fabric and sew to the panel - see the left panel in the photo below.
Option 2. Sew the fabric on as is and embellish with a ribbon where the two fabrics meet. (I like this one).
Option 3. Ditch the teal fabric all together and lower the panels.
IF I decide to add the fabric - I will probably opt for stitch witchery instead of actually sewing them together - this way I can change it if I get sick of it.
Hubs hates the fabric option but he just doesn't understand where I'm coming from on this... In this case, his opinion doesn't exist.
