A blog about a love of colour, addiction to fabrics and joy of crafting…

Lined Curtains


My Bathroom Curtains Bathroom curtains might not be the most interesting topic in the world to blog about, but since I was quite pleased with the results I thought I’ll post some pictures anyway.

I particularly like the fabric (home decor weight fabric by Amy Butler), it’s jolly and colourful, and manages to be both slightly retro and modern at the same time. I am a big fan of Amy Butler.

Bathroom Curtain Detail

From a sewing point of view it was a new learning experience for me because I decided to line the curtains with light-blocking thermal fabric. We live in an old poorly-insulated house, and in the winter it tends to rather chilly, so I’ve decided to line all the curtains I make. Although it wasn’t particularly difficult, it took me a couple goes to decide the best way to go about it (foolishly, I was too impatient to search for any instructions, I thought it’ll be easy enough to figure it out). Yes I did figure it out, but no doubt I would’ve saved some time by doing some research first.

In the end I decided to leave the net curtains the previous owner had left behind. I rather like them as I thought they go nicely with the mood of the Amy Butler fabric … oops, have I just confessed publicly I like net curtains… how untrendy is that! Well, they’re sort of retro, aren’t they?

I love colour wherever I find it, in art, photography, gardens, nature. I also love all kinds of fiber arts; spinning, dyeing, knitting, felting, sewing.

  1. I love this fabric!!! It matches my Amy Butler bedding perfectly. What is the name of the pattern? I’d love to buy some to make curtains for my bedroom. Thanks, Julie

  2. Hi Heidi, I love this fabric too… but unfortunately I’m joining the Amy Butler party too late. Many of the patterns I discovered are long out of stock. If you do happen to have any extra pieces of the Coreopsis or even want to sell the curtains feel free to contact me.
