I think this is the first time a home dec project makes it into my blog. The reason is simple – I don’t find sewing home dec all that enjoyable, loads of grinding work and very little creativity. Cindy explains these feelings well – sewing straight lines gets boring really fast.
However we needed curtains for our new living room window and since I got a very specific idea straight away I decided to sew a pair. The pleats are actually something I had planned to use on a dress, but never got around to. The ivory coloured linen is bought on the cheap from Ikea, and while I’m a sucker for fine and expensive fabrics, the Ikea version is actually pretty nice. I wanted the curtains to be a tribute to the home weaved linen and cotton curtains that my farmer grandparents was very fond of and that my mum also uses from time to time.
