Hi there!!! Are you getting ready for spring and spring cleaning? Well I am and I have been making curtains for several rooms in my house. I started in my kitchen and used some cute coffee fabric (that my hubby helped pick out) to make these:
I love them! I loved them so much that I immediately bought more fabric to make curtains for my bathroom.
I used a very simple method that allows you to make curtains for any window. I used my travel iron and my press board (that I made a while back) and had these done in about 2 hours, including cutting time. I got the pattern out of this amazing book The Best of Sew Simple Magazine, unfortunately I do not see it sold new anymore. The great thing is that the pattern in this book is very simple and can be applied to just about any window or door in your home that needs curtains. I also made valances for the tiers using that pattern.
I finished those kitchen curtains and then made a set for my bathroom using the same method.
I had enough fabric left over from the kitchen curtains to make some matching placemats and mug rugs, so I already have my next project picked out.
Until next time, stay safe in these crafting streets!
