These are instructions for making double-sided curtains. In Part 1, we made the curtain ties and sewed a contrasting border to the bottom of the curtains.
I based my pattern on the one here.
Mark 1/2 inch along both sides of the main fabric. I used a fabric marker that erases with water.
Fold over along the line and press.
See the turquoise line (above)? Mark 4 inches from the top of the main fabric pieces (on both folded over edges). Sew that edge down from the top of the fabric to that mark. You’ll only be sewing those 4 inches down right now.
This will keep the curtain rod from catching on a raw edge, because this is where you’ll later be sewing the curtain rod channel.
Can you see the stitch line (above)? Notice that the stitches are very close to the raw edge.
Layer your curtain pieces with right sides together (You’ll do that later.). Sew the TOP and BOTTOM. Do not sew the sides together. Turn right side out and press.
