Lambrequin curtains of patchwork

All women know that the comfort in the house always create curtains. The interior of the apartment often depends on how the curtains are built into it. Because the curtains can create comfort, warmth, increase or decrease the space and height of the room. You can stick faceless wallpapers, but by hanging the right curtains and pelmet, the room will look fashionable, ornate. Each hostess has old curtains, which are pitiful and throw away, and they lie unclaimed for years. I suggest using old curtains to make lambrequins out of them. Take two types of curtains of different colors, better than one-colored ones. I took two kinds of blue and coffee. We will also need threads of the same two colors and a lining for the main material. My thin silk curtains, and if they were sewn without a lining, they would curl and lose their shape if they were hung on the window. For the lining, you can use the old sheet, I had a new white sheet unused from old times. Cut out three kinds of squares from paper, say 20x20, 16x16, 12x12. Well, it's up to you.Spread the old curtains and cut an equal number of all kinds of squares of two colors.

The number of squares depends from the length of your window, you can draw the lambrequin on paper approximately at once and calculate the quantity you need. I personally cut myself even if I lacked them when stitching. After cutting, you need to put a base on the squares.

Then carefully trimmed the excess along the contour. After processing and trimming the squares, I put chains on them on the floor, making them as I liked. I tried to put it just a small square, it turned out to be simple and not very original, then I put it angle up, and it became much more interesting to look. Sewn on the machine in the same functions, first the chain in length.

Hung up with my husband really enjoyed it. The advantage of such a lambrequin is great! Check out Otto's catalogs. In the West, they love things and decorations for the house and apartment in this style. The advantage of such a lambrequin is obvious! First, everyone has old curtains, old sheets too. So, you do not have to spend money to buy all this. Secondly, every hostess also always has threads, especially since they do not need to be matched by color. The more contrasting the threads will be, the more beautiful they will look on the squares. This means that you will not have to spend on the purchase of threads either. Lambrequin, made with your own hands is unique, it means that you will not find such a thing among any of your friends. A big plus is that when the lambrequin hangs on the window and through the holes between the squares the sun gets in, this creates a very beautiful darkened sun effect in the room. Sew and enjoy your crafts!
