8 Patchwork Curtains to Make at Home

8 Patchwork Curtains to Make at Home

Admired recently: floaty, informal curtains made from patched-together linens. Here the editors of Remodelista rounded up eight examples that are easy to replicate, inspiring us all to get out our sewing machines.

Very clever, I moved to a new house last year and it was very bare and I needed some curtains to stop the whole world from seeing what I was doing so I took a bed sheet and tied it up to the main window and just stuck magazine papers to another window. Finished.

My great aunts made a bunch of doilies which I inherited and stitched together for lacy curtains.
