Valentine's Day is a day of sharing, caring and spreading joy I thought I would share a very easy tutorial for my fellow novice sewists. I know some might be intimidated by sewing machines, but this simple tutorial will be so easy that once you get the hang of the first panel the other two, three and four can be assembled in no time. Usually I sew my panels from large bolts of fabric, but this tutorial requires purchasing already premade sheer white cotton fabric from a retailer like Target, Walmart or other large chain suppliers. The sheers I purchased are from Target, Nate Berkus line 84 inch length. I always sew panels at least 96 inch long, since the 84 in are typically far to short and tend to make the windows appear smaller.
Premade Cotton Sheers. Try to purchase panels on clearance.
1 Yard (for each window) decorative fabric- I chose this striped blue and white fabric
2 yards of decorative trim
Sew these pieces of fabric together.
Head to the sewing machine and use a blind stitch to sew the length portion of the fabric together.
Sew the hem with a blind stitch.
The finished product, a sheer, with a touch of personality.
Hope this inspires you to dust off your sewing machine and very easily sew panels for your bedrooms.
Thanks for reading and making me a small part of your day.
