I'm not a huge fan of sewing home dec, but I've been meaning to replace my kitchen curtains for well over a decade. Just after Christmas I decided I had the time and motivation to do it, so my husband and I went down to the fabric store and picked out some new drapery fabric, and I whipped them up in two days. So much for waiting for so long!
We chose a traditional print that picks up all the colours in our kitchen, and it works really well. I had a queen size sheet that was perfect for the lining - these are simple pocket top curtains, although of three different sizes!
Anyhow, the hardest part, after the cutting, was just the endless pressing of long hems. But they are finally done, and I have remembered why I don't enjoy home dec projects ;) But I do like the finished thing, and they really make our kitchen feel warmer and cozier. Now I won't have to make more for another decade!
