    I love your videos they have given me the confidence to make my own curtains and blinds....Julie

    Your videos are so good, thank you…..Alex

    Once again, I should say that I think the video tutorials are extremely well done. Although I've been sewing for years I've learnt lots of techniques that are new to me and that give a much more professional finish........Heather

    Thank you for such brilliant tutorials and videos....... ....Barbara

    I have absolutely loved your videos for curtain making, I have learnt so much from you….Charlotte

    MAKE THE HEM

    Hem the bottom edge of the linings. This is a double hem (turned twice) 6cm for sill length curtains and 8cm for floor length curtains:

    • Fold up the bottom (8cm or 6cm)
    • Fold up another (8cm or 6cm)
    • Pin and machine stitch
    • Now put your lining panels to one side, we will deal with the fabric next.
