New Curtains

Last weekend was spent wrestling what seemed like miles of fabric. The finished product was worth it though!

 I wasn't sure how the wool tartan would be with the velvet (ish) fabric but it turned out great. It was a nerve wracking experience though, the wool tartan is the most expensive fabric I have ever worked with!


  1. I love that Tartan, it's beautiful! Very Anta! Well done. I've made curtains twice (neither pairs full length) and had to make them at my mum's because I didn't have enough floor space to lay them out! We have very wide windows!

    1. It is a Moon tartan, still made in the UK with british wool without the insane Anta price tags (still bloomin expensive though)!!


  2. Lovely job! The tartan is just beautiful! we need new curtains for our lounge after our cats attacked them, but it never occured to me to make them ... another job to add to the list I think :)

  3. I love the tartan! It is really beautiful! Great job on the curtains - I know how hard it is to sew big pieces of fabric!

  4. They look lovely together - really special.

    Thanks for linking up!

  7. Your curtains came out lovely! You'd think it's easy to make curtains- but I made a 7x8 panel that was so crooked...so I hemmed it crooked to make it match- it was a mess. I need a bigger cutting table! I swore no more curtains but after seeing yours I want to try again :)

  8. I love your curtains! I so need to get new ones for my place.

    I also found you on the Round Tuit
