Burlap curtains

One panel of my daughter's curtains are up.  Please don't look too closely we are amateurs.


They are nine foot burlap panels with a twenty inch topper.  She used these iron holders to clip them to.  The toppers have triple pleats across the top.
They are lined of course.  I know that is an extra step and expense, but it is so worth it.  The true color of the fabric you choose shows and they do not fade.  



She just has to hang three more and she we are done.  My sewing machine and sewing basket are back home now.   Grand-mothers if you are reading this, she and her sister both need sewing kits.

  1. They look great! I would never know you are amateurs. Of course I can't sew a lick so that may not be saying much but I think you did a great job. I love the burlap and the topper looks great with it. I can't see the hooks too well but they look pretty from here.

  10. You are so right about linning them. It gives them body and they will hang more like custom draperies.
