Making Up Dyed Lace Curtains

This curtain was made with a single panel of cotton lace dyed with Chalk Paint®. The whole of the panel was used – it didn’t need lining, hemming or edging. The top of the curtain needed a firm and strong border (or header), both to look good and to attach the curtain clips.

  1. To make the header, fold over the top edge of the fabric by 1cm.

  2. Hide this edge by making another fold this time by 2cm.

  3. Pin and then stitch this border to create a header. You could do this by hand or machine.

  4. Attach curtain clips, which are good for a light-weight curtain like this. Clip roughly every 10cm.

    This lace curtain was dyed with Chalk Paint®. To find out how and learn more about this project, see Annie Sloan Paints Everything published by CICO Books 2016. Photography by Christopher Drake © CICO Books.
