Tablecloth + Napkins = Curtains

I have a tablecloth which I don’t want to throw away but would like to make use of……..if this is you then this is a great idea for its use.

PILLOWS A-LA-MODE

I was in the mood for some new curtains for two skinny bedroom windows, and I had some fabric that would work perfectly . . . a tablecloth and napkins!

  • Cut the tablecloth in half to make two curtains.
  • Cut a strip off the bottom of each piece.
  • Cut two of the napkins into fourths and sew the strips together to make long, narrow borders.
  • Sew the napkin borders to the tablecloth fabrics.
  • Hem all the unfinished edges.
  • Turn the tops under and stitch to make casings for the curtain rods.
  • Hem all the way around the two extra strips and use them for tie-backs.
  • Make a matching pillow with the other two napkins.

I love the new look! ♥
