Simple bedroom curtain
« on: December 18, 2018, 11:14:13 AM »
Only one curtain because the window is small and I'm lazy. It's our guest room and the curtain is more for decoration plus me getting dressed in the morning so I am not going to line it and will keep it really simple with just turned over sides and deep hem, pencil pleat tape on top. I have some string weights so I will catchstitch them in to help them hang.

The fabric is Prestigious Textiles Langden in Hydrangea, I got 3.5m for £16!

Could I bags any offcuts over 5" square please ...
not lots or big bits but so they can be cut to a nice square 5" would be nice (if possible)

I will explain later this month when my head doesnt threaten to explode by looking at a monitor for too long.

Hmm I can try but not sure if there will be any. I bought just the right amount of length to cut it clean in half and sew it together into two panels and turn up... but if there is any I will let you know!

I like single curtains - I think they look very stylish as long as the window isn't in the middle of a wall where it tends to look as though there's one missing!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Well Im thinking pics must be due of this curtain as today, through the post I received an offcut of the fabric...

Thank you sooo much Fran, it will really help me if I get round to posting what I was thinking of doing but am now thinking of copping out of!
