Toile, Gingham, Lace, Easy Peasy Curtain

Toile, gingham, lace and very little sewing. What is there not to love about this sweet window treatment?









 Our guest bedroom must serve many different folks. Our Grands, my parents, our adult children when they come to visit. We also have guest speakers stay with us on occasion. It is painted in a rich buttery yellow. In the Summer I put a cream comforter in there, but Winter calls for cozier linens.


A fussy treatment seems to overwhelm such a small space so I came up with this simple topper.


The topper is the width of my toile fabric, I eyeballed how long to make it, turned the edges with the iron and stitched tiny hems. You could use fabric glue if you don't sew.



Then clip it up with curtain rings. Love, love these little guys!


The curtain is a piece of gingham with the edges turned under. I clipped a piece of lace to drape over the checked fabric. See...told you it was easy!



Didn't even hem the sides!






SWEET and SIMPLE








Hope you liked it!

Have an awesome week!

Blessings, Audrey
