ME: KITCHY! for a $1000 Alex.
ALEX: 3 1/2 yards of fabric + time + effort =
ME: New Kitchen Curtains, oops I mean; What is NEW KITCHEN CURTAINS?
A little shout out to Alex Trebek.
Back to regularly scheduled programming. I visited Hobby Lobby and picked up this
printed fabric. It was $9.99 per yard, but I had a 40% off coupon, so it was about $17.50 total.
I took down my old curtains that I previously made and used it as a pattern.
Very simply, I just traced it, but remembered to leave 1 inch for seam allowance.
I folded the material 1 inch on the top and both sides.
For the bottom, I folded 3 inches and then ironed all the sides.
The curtain rod has to go through the top, so I sewed both sides first
and then folded the top over, Lastly, sewed the bottom.
Initially, I used an old curtain as a pattern, but to make sure both
panels are the same, I used the one I just made as my new pattern,
Repeated the same process for the valance.
But this time, folded the top over 3 inches and the bottom 1 inch.
To create a ruffled top, sew the hem and then sew again in the middle of the fabric.
Slide the curtain rod between the two stitched lines.
Repeated the same process for a short curtain over my back door.
Repeated the same process for a short curtain over my kitchen sink.
