Sewing: Window Treatments

One of the things I love in any home is window treatments. The luxurious look that fabric can bring to any home. Fabric can transform any home from a plain Jane.

As a novice seamstress, I learned how to sew by making curtains in every home we live in. And this home is no different. I sewed and lined all the window treatments.

The living room:

My bedroom; This room is too dark and we are going to totally re-do this room this fall.

Sewing curtains is an easy process. First measure the windows carefully. Secondly, all the seams are straight lines. I will be making new curtains for my bedroom and will show you the process, soon.


  1. Oh I had forgotten about that gorgeous border in your dining room! I just love that room. Great job on the window treatments. Do you know how much money you are saving? Wow! Target has a sewing machine on sale this week and I thought about buying it. I think even I could handle those straight lines. :)

  2. You are inspiring me to get busy. I have had fabric for 5 yrs in my closet for living room window treatments guess it's time to do something with it. :))

  3. I like how the dog follows you around in the pictures.
    Mine does that too:)

    And beautiful window treatments!!!

  4. I am sooo impressed. When I was a young wife I had the nerve and ambition to tackle window treatments but now I just don't. I love what you have done in each room and appreciate your inspiration. Will be looking forward to our lesson.

  5. Once I made curtains for my kitchen out of a large white and red checkered picnic throw. It was so pretty!

  6. Are you sure you're a novice? I bought a sewing machine with every intention of making something...anything. Well, what's that saying about good intentions? All your curtains are gorgeous! I'm so impressed! Maybe there's hope for me yet!

  7. I am the only person in the world that can make sewing look hard .. chuckle! Beautiful home & decor. TTFN ~Marydon
