Curtains. Sunday , September 03rd , 2017 - 16:21:01 PM
To sew your own curtains you only need some basic knowledge in needlework. You also need to have the measurements of your windows when you go to purchase the curtain fabric. Sometimes you can also use some of your old clothes to add colorful patchwork to your curtains. All you need is a sketch of how the final look should be.
Some curtains require some lining at the back to make them thick. In this case, cut the lining material of the same length as the curtain fabric. Pin the two fabrics with their plain sides facing each other. Sew the two materials together at the border with a sewing machine. Fold the edges at least half an inch inwards along three sides and then hem sew it using the sewing machine. Only one of the shorter sides should be left unstitched. However if you want to add drapery weights on the bottom side of the curtain you should leave it unstitched too.
Curtain tracks and curtain poles can be hand operated so that many different curtains can operate on one window. This allows curtains of different widths and drops to stack at different locations on the window. In addition they can also be operated as a blind with a cord to avoid handling the curtains or electrically for the extra security and a touch of luxury.
