I was inspired to make new curtains for my dining room/library when I saw a picture of a beautiful hand blocked, floral linen from Schumacher. I spent the better part of two days scanning through thousands of fabric swatches at my favored fabric showroom. I returned home with 5-7 swatches I believed evoked the same feeling as the Schumacher. However, once they were displayed in the natural light of the room, only one fit the bill. I was charmed by a floral chintz from Kravet.
|I wanted the curtains to be extra full, so I made them 108" wide and interlined them with fleece.|
|I added buttons I made using a simple tool and a minimal amount of moss green cotton. The trim down the edge was the finishing touch.|
