Yesterday was the last day of my Easter break (oh how lovely that was!) and I decided to spend it using my sewing machine. If you read my Bedroom decor reveal post, you may remember me mentioning that I wanted some curtains to match my wallpaper. Laura Ashely curtains are made to measure- thus being very expensive, so after seeing the Fabric I needed in the half price sale (£22 down a metre from £44) I decided I would make them myself!!
I have to say, it was both exciting and nerve wracking. I had never made curtains before, plus, with the fabric working out fairly pricey (even wight the discount) I wanted to make sure I got it right first time! I had been putting if off for a few weeks but built up enough courage to actually do it. I had the full day to dedicate to it.
I had already watched a few You Tube tutorials and read a few blog tutorials, so I had a cuppa in the morning, went over my plan again and got to work. It did take me most of the day, but I took my time and I'm quite pleased with how they turned out. Are they perfect? Certainly not- but I can be super chuffed with myself that I made them all by myself.
The cushions were so easy to make. I have put together a little tutorial for you, so make sure you check back tomorrow for that :)
