CUS­TOMISED CUR­TAINS

You will need A pair of cur­tains; two lengths of fab­ric in pat­terns of your choice (they need to be 10cm longer than the to­tal width of your cur­tains); scis­sors; iron; sewing pins; sewing ma­chine.

STEP ONE First, cut lengths of fab­ric in pre­ferred widths and lengths. You’ll need two strips for each cur­tain. Hem edges.

STEP TWO Join first two strips of fab­ric, right sides in, lin­ing up edges along one side. Sew edge with sewing ma­chine.

STEP THREE Open up the sewn strips of fab­ric and iron.

STEP FOUR Lay out one of the cur­tains so it’s flat and smooth. Po­si­tion the sewn fab­ric over the cur­tain at a level you feel looks best vis­ually. Pin fab­ric in place.

STEP FIVE Fold the ends of the fab­ric over the cur­tain hems and sew in place. Now sew along edges of the fab­ric. Re­peat steps two to five for sec­ond cur­tain.
