Last week, if you recall, I was cleaning and organizing my workroom and, no, it ain’t over. Yeah, the work continues. I have a whole list of lovely workroom-related to-dos (here). So this week I am busily trying to put a few of those chores behind me. For instance, over the last few days I’ve installed a hanging rod: a place where I can hang things, you know, like wet sheets of painted paper or fabric pieces I’m working on. I’ve also painted the shelf and brackets that will go above the credenza. I’ve yet to actually put them up though. Maybe later today. Tomorrow at the latest. Aaaaand…. I’ve made a curtain!
For this curtain you will need:
- A few meters (yards) of fabric. Enough to cover your window or doorway. I’m putting up a doorway-curtain so I needed roughly 5 meters (yards) of fabric which I divided in two. Hint: So that your curtain looks nice and full, you want to have at least twice the width of your doorway or window in fabric.
- Several small pieces of colourful fabric roughly 20cm x 30cm (9″x12″) in size. Any fabric will do, I used a mix of polyesters and cottons.
- Fusible web. You will need enough to fuse to all of your small pieces of fabric. There are many brands, I just happened to have Heat ‘n’ Bond.
- Rotary cutter, acrylic ruler, and cutting mat.
- Scissors, thread and pins.
- Sewing machine.
- Your trusty iron and ironing board.
