Triple Pleat Curtains

These are the latest curtains that I have made for a client. The fabric used was Dotty Berry by Clarke and Clarke with a blackout lining as they are for the bedroom.

Feature Wall

With spring nearly upon us it’s time to start giving rooms a bit of a re-vamp. If you have a plain wall you want to liven up then this can be a great idea to make it more of a feature wall. All you need is some fabric in whatever style and colour you like and an array of embroidery rings in different sizes.

All you need to do is loosen off the larger ring so the smaller one comes off then simply place your chosen fabric over the small ring lining it up making sure any patterns are level and straight. Once you are happy with the position place the larger ring over the top and tighten the screw. Next turn over the ring so you can see the back then all that needs to be done is trim the fabric off as seen above.

 Once you have made as many as you like you can then display them similar to above placing them where you like. They can be closer together or spread out a bit more if covering a larger wall.


If you want to add a bit more detail you can appliqué different shapes or even add detail such as buttons or sequins.
