New Curtains

Beach Hut Curtain Fabric
Grey Beach Hut curtain fabric from Terrys online shop
Once the tiles and fittings were in place it was time for the curtains.  Terrys Fabric online shop had a great nautical collection on sale for £7.99 per metre. It was amazing to find curtain fabric cheaper than quilting fabric!

The curtains came together in no time with my Juki Exceed 600.  I used OMNI thread on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin. The trickiest bit of curtains for me is the hemming. But I was able to figure out the blind hem stitch using an online tutorial and the special blind hem foot that came with my Juki Exceed sewing machine.

  It's all about the folding. And the results are truly invisible!

Not bad for my very first blind hem! It looks so professional.

And here are the curtains all finished and up in the new bathroom. I've been saving ideas on my bathrooms and seaside pinterest boards. So wonderful to be able to enjoy the finished product!

We re-painted this boat-shelf to match the curtains

I'm loving that adorable print! I really think that that fabric is perfect for bathroom drapes. You did a great job in sewing those invisible hems. Thanks for sharing, BTW! More power to you and your blog!
