When I was visiting my Mom and Dad in Rigolet, Newfoundland and Labrador, she gave me many different sized and coloured pieces of fabric – from fat quarters to several yards. Several pieces Mom had bought were from Craftsy.

A one yard piece of fabric was a paisley pattern.  I loved it so much I had to make it into a set of curtains for my upstairs bathroom.

First thing I did was iron out all the wrinkles, cut off the salvage, and cut the yard into two equal pieces, down the centre.


Next, I folded the raw edge under twice on all the long sides and ironed them flat before sewing.

With the long sides sewed, I placed the two pieces side by side to decide on how I wanted them to hang.


With the bottoms decided, I double rolled the bottom seam and ironed the edges flat decide on the length of the curtain.  I double rolled and ironed the seam down for sewing. I used a 4″ fold for the top.


Curtains done. Now to hang them! I love them.
