Remember this fabric that Andy gave to me for my birthday? Well, I finally got to work and sewed it in to curtains for the master bedroom. Miss Mauney Moo wasn’t too happy that I was taking away her fabric nest.
I had already measured how much fabric I would need for each panel so I set to work sewing the raw edges over. I always like to iron my edges over when I am sewing large sections. I used my measuring tape to turn the edges over a 1/2 inch and then again another 1/2 inch.
Then I sewed a straight stitch along each ironed edge.
I did this on all four edges and did not sew a casing or tabs. I had already decided that I wanted to use drapery clips on this project because I like the more contemporary look. You can see how the corners turned out; nothing fancy, just turned over each other.
While I was sewing, Andy worked on hanging the curtain rod.
Then I clipped the fabric on and voila!! Extremely simple sewing project that anyone could do.
We love them. They add a much more finished look to the room.
What do you think? Would you try a project like this in your home?
