Shortly after my governor enacted a stay-at-home order, my neighborhood had a moment with a couple thieves stealing stuff out of folks cars in the middle of the night. As a result, my spouse asked me to make curtains for all of the downstairs windows so folks can’t see what’s in our home. And while he didn’t care about aesthetics, Helena was very quick to let me know that Mister Domestic had to have nice curtains. Hence, the tale of three [sets of] curtains emerged.
As with most of my projects, I invited Helena to help me pick out the fabrics. Her papa vetoed once of the fabrics, which I agreed with, so I replaced that fabric with denim and got to work.
First up was the kitchen. Helena picked this Amy Sinibaldi print from Paperie. It was recolored in one of last year’s AGF Fusions and boy did it catch the light beautifully framing Cardi Tree.
Next up was a panel of four curtains along a shorter window. We didn’t have enough of this Bari J print, so I decided to have a 6″ band of denim on the top and bottom which would tie it into the third curtain set and created a perfect frame for the light to come through the print.
Now this third curtain duo was the main event as it took more time to make than the other two combined. I had always wanted to use a flat-fell seam in curtains and this was the perfect opportunity to innovate since I didn’t have enough of any single denim to cover the entire opening.
Since the construction and aesthetic was so epic, I decided to create a step out tutorial over on the Brother Sews Stitching Sewcial Blog. And I have a video tutorial already on my YouTube channel from a couple years ago of how to sew a flat-felled seam if you’ve never seen it in action.
I hope you enjoyed the catwalk of curtains in this post and are maybe inspired to add some jush to your home decor.
