Some of these products are sold by the metre so that you can order exactly how much you need for your desired project. We endeavour to always cut our orders in one piece, however, due to the size of the rolls provided by manufacturers, this cannot always be guaranteed. As a result, if you do make an order that is over 5m, it is not likely to be in one continuous piece.
How should I prepare my fabric?
All of our fabrics have been designed to help prevent colour bleeding, however, there is always a risk of this happening, and it is dependent upon the materials and methods that the manufacturer used. So, it is recommended that you hand wash your chosen fabric in cold water prior to beginning your project. This also allows for the changes in size and shapes that fabrics can undergo when it is wet.
Do you have any tips for making my own curtains?
A well-dressed window makes all the difference, and it is the perfect way to finish off your home decor and make the right impression. Plus, making your own curtains is an inexpensive way to transform your space, and you can pick the exact style, length and fabric that matches your style. Before you begin, organise your workspace and ensure that you have a large flat space to work. Measure your material to the size you require, it is important that you cut your fabric accurately so that your curtains are the perfect size for your window.
There are lots of different ways to make your curtains, and the method you choose will depend on the overall finish that you are hoping to achieve. Have an iron on hand to iron the seams, crease the fabric and create perfect prints. It is also important to consider whether you are aiming for lined or unlined curtains, with the former adding extra insulation and privacy and the latter allowing in light for an airy feel. Lined curtains also hang better, and unless you are going for the sheer look, most curtain makers choose to do this.
It is important that you hem your curtains to the appropriate length, allowing them to sit on the floor without an excess drop or hovering in the middle. Finally, if you have opted for patterned curtain fabric, then it is important to pay attention to the pattern and ensure that it is continuous and uninterrupted when your curtains hang.
