I would love to use this fabric for window treatments! I think I love the banana leaf so much because they literally grow likes weeds here in New Orleans and they just remind me of home.
The very unfortunate reality is that this fabric is $54 a yard!! Whhaaaaa.... times like this I wish I still worked there for that discount! Guess I'll have to settle for a pillow or two instead...
** UPDATE! - Went to Calico and the fabric was a let down in person! Very drab greys and more upholstery weight than drapery... ah well!
