Gifts for my mama

I've been wanting to make some new drapes and pillows for my mom's living room. I didn't ask for colors or ideas, just my mom's trust! And I went with it.  

A little before shot of the old curtains (I forgot to take one of the whole living room, dang it!). The pillows also coordinated with the curtains.

And after

The new curtains really lightened up the space and made it feel fresh.
 I probably said "This looks so great!" about 50 times. Luckily my mom agrees. 

I got the idea for the curtains from these beautiful Anthropologie ones. I wasn't about to pay $168 per panel though, so I made my own version.
A $500 look for under $50 (thanks to my coupons from Jo-Ann's)! Can I get a what-what?

Close-up shot of the new pillows:
(there is also a solid-colored pillow under construction-didn't quite make the deadline) 

Thanks mom for letting me test out my ideas on your living room!
