Easy To Sew Window Treatments in Your Virginia Home

When it comes to decorating your home, you should be willing to experiment with colors and patterns to make your home look unique and reflect your personal style. One way to incorporate uniqueness in your home’s indoors is to try out your creative skills with fabrics. And if you love sewing, you can definitely complete a DIY project successfully, inviting at lot of admirations all your way. You can use your old bed and table linens in combination with new fabrics to create beautiful window treatments that will perfectly complement your home’s indoor appearance.

You can create window panels with flat sheets. Twin sheets come with a standard size of 66”W x 99”L which can perfectly cover up a standard window of 30-40” width. This can be as simple as hanging a pair of flat sheets of equal dimensions off rods that are attached inside the window frames. You may choose to keep the panels on two sides and use a ribbon and an eyelet-hook to hold them in their places. What’s more interesting is that you can slip the sheets over the tension rods very easily as the hemmed placket will have open ends that can readily allow a rod to pass through. You may choose to add a lining material if you are looking to bring room darkening options in place.

If you have an old tablecloth that you think can be used as window valance, you should definitely go for this option. A tablecloth with pretty colors and patterns may often prove to be more appealing than fabrics that are specifically meant to be used to make window valance. You can sew valances in a number of ways, creating distinct patterns and using coordinating fabric on the backside to create a fuller look.

Interestingly, you can use vintage hand towels to create valance for your kitchen windows. Adding a feel of history to your kitchen indoors, valances that are made out of vintage hand towels can incorporate a classic look in your kitchen’s indoor atmosphere. You can try out unique sewing patterns depending on your skill level and the time that you can commit to complete the process.

You can even create a really beautiful combination of the original burlap roman shade that you buy from a store and old fabric pieces that you are looking to reuse. Make sure that the color of the fabric matches with the color of your wall and windows. Cut the fabric into long strips and sew the strips onto the shade with each strip being separated by equal distances. This way, you will not only add a tinge of exciting hue to an otherwise uniform and boring burlap roman shade, but you will also instill a unique appeal in your home’s indoor atmosphere. What’s more interesting is that you can execute these simplest styling efforts in just an hour and that too with the most basic sewing skill.
