Living abroad, even though it is my home now, one can sometimes feel a bit home sick. My solution is to have things, fabric or patterns that remind me of Finland incorporated into my home. My was my first home improvement project in summer 2010 was these folding curtains. I had seen them in a store with a high price tag on them but how hard can it be to make them myself.
Some Marimekko fabric some string, metal loops, some wooden pins and a sewing machine.
