As I’ve said before, I love, love, love Laura’s stuff! Just love it. It’s bright and bold.. and simply fabulous.
I made some very simple curtains for my bath with only one yard of this lovely fabric (Spice-Big Poppy).
If you’d like to give it a whirl here’s what you’ll need:
1. One yard of fabric
2. Two packs of double fold bias tape (quilt binding)
3. Matching thread
Cut right down the middle (long ways) to make two panels
Pin you bias tape down the sides of your panels (your fabric should slide between the tape)
Once all four sides of your panels are sewn.. measure bias tape for the bottom of your panels with about an extra half inch on each side. Turn the extra under like so..
Pin tape to the bottoms of your panels and sew.
Decide how long you’d like your curtains to be… I wanted mine to fall right at the molding of my window. Fold the excess under.. this will be the top of your curtain.
Then flip about a half inch under again to give yourself a nice finish. Sparingly pin.
Now, you want your panels to be even..so this is probably the most crucial step.. If you’re a pro with a measuring tape then measure twice and sew.. I’m too lazy to measure.. I pin my panels together with the bottoms together like this…
then I match my tops exactly and pin down.. like this…
then sew your tops closed and hang.
Bathroom curtains for about 10 bucks. 🙂
