Now for something REALLY ambitious…
When we moved into our house I left most of our curtains behind except for our bedroom curtains. These are huge for our new bedroom window so I thought, with my new sewing machine, I would alter them.
What a disaster!!
I’ve never worked with fabric so large and I struggled to keep up with the width of fabric (probably 5 metres) and measured and cutting. Fortunately I don’t plan to keep these curtains once we redecorate but what a nightmare! I did one curtain and then didn’t have time to do any more. There is one more curtain and two linings to do too!
I have since had a tip – fold the fabric and cut through several layers. This makes a lot of sense!
Time taken: so far about 2 hours but this project isn’t finished yet!
