New Curtains


Stash Busting 2013:  Project #18 

Fabric Used:     2.0 metres of drapery fabric.  

*****
This project was first mentioned here and completed over a week ago. I think I actually finished these before I completed my brother's shirt. I just didn't have a photo to post until now.  

These are new curtains for Mama R. We found this fabric at Fabricland last year and I should have had this done months ago. 

The curtains came to be through a joint production. Mama R did the measuring and basting and then it ended up on my sewing table to be stitched. I guess that was her way of a gentle nudge.  

And there was no new thread purchased for this project. I had a perfect match to stash-bust from my stash. The perfectly matched thread left over from this dress project. 

Mama R is thrilled with them because they block out much of the light in the early morning. I'm just thrilled that she's thrilled.  

Happy Sewing!

  1. Yay curtains! So boring to make, but they turned out great! :) I swore never to sew curtains again, and even my boyfriend knows not to ask after the cursing that came from my sewing room last time I made some. :D I love the fabric you chose.
