Sewing New Curtains with @SunbeltGranola #Craft

Ahhhhhhhhhh yessssssss!!  I finally did it.  I finally made the kitchen curtains I have had the want and fabric to make for over a year now.

Before, the bare windows and curtain rods:

Last summer, I had found the fabric at Joann's for under $2 a yard.  The plan was to make some cute scalloped/pointed valances and add tassels to the points.  But you know how life steps in and makes you rethink sometimes?  That's what happened and I settled on making a much simpler valance.  And that's ok too, I love how they turned out!  Nothing makes a home more cozy than window coverings.

Since the pattern on this fabric did not run with the selvage I had to piece several panels together.  Then, just finish the edges, hem and create the top rod pocket.  That's it.  Easy, easy.  Except, I got a little hungry while sewing.  And then I remembered... Sunbelt Granola Bars!!

Sunbelt had sent us some granola bars for review and they were just the thing for a snack while sewing!  What would I choose?  Oats and Honey?  Strawberry Fruit and Grain?  Sweet and Salty? Or maybe Chocolate Chip?  I settled on Oats and Honey and reached into the box to grab one and only 4 left in the box.  Yes, my family had apparently been enjoying the granola bars too.  It's no wonder really, since Sunbelt snacks are a huge hit around our home.  From the great flavors, variety, portability, nutritional value I can approve of and incredible price value, Sunbelt is a winner for us.  To find where Sunbelt is sold, visit their website to locate a store.  An insider tip is to connect with Sunbelt on Facebook and Twitter as they are known to offer coupons and promotions available only to those who have connected with them.

Oh, and back to those curtains.  The finished product:  

One final note.  As I was finishing my sewing for the night, my son was organizing his back pack for school the next day.  We decided that some of those Sunbelt Granola Bars were a necessity.  Growing brains need fuel during the day. :)

I have a material connection because I received a gift or sample of Sunbelt products for consideration in preparing to write this content. I was/am not expected to return this item or gift after my review period.
