Craftblogging -the dreaded fourth curtain

(viewed 702 times)
Bookmark and Share

This last curtain of the project has been sitting around as a lump of fabric for far too long, so after everything else, I decided I wanted it finished before tomorrow's brunch.

Blue upholstery fabric and pearl grey microsuede make for
fantastic (and cheap) blackout curtains, once the fabric has been laid out and the never ending seams are folded, pressed, hemmed and sewn (lather, inse & repeat until each side is completed, and then do the ends.)

It's nice to have them finally frigging done, and for about the price of one ok pair of curtains at a shop. Next stop, the bedroom curtain project, which is currently nothing but a bolt of fabric...

Not a prob, Elf, I totally know the feeling.

Now off to continue this madness of cleaning and prep for tomorrow, which was totally an excuse to force me to clean and bake.

2 why do you need blackout curtains?
genuinely curious!

parabolichobo, I meant to say microsuede. Shows you how awake I was. And we needed blackout curtains because of the of the midsummer sunlight -it can get really warm and bright in the livingroom, due to the angle of the windows.
