Thank you for your excellent instructions and videos. I've just hung my blind and am delighted with it. Having bought some beautiful and very expensive fabric I didn't want to have rows of stitches across it (the method I've used before machine stitches channels for the rods through both layers of fabric). With your method my blind looks like a piece of art, with not one visible stitch..........Cecily
The video tutorials were very instructive and easy to follow........Julia

Thank you so much! We are due to move into our first home (owned) and the thought of buying a whole house of curtains daunted me. Yet with this simple guide I am in the middle of making them all.

So thank you, because your fab tutorial has saved me a lot of money and meant I could have fitted curtains in whatever fabric I liked! 1 down 11 to go!.......Stacey P-B

Step 7: Join the Fabric Panels along the zip edge
PREPARE THE REAR FABRIC PANEL
First we need to press a line in the rear panel (no piping attached) where the zip will attach:
Lay the rear panel right side down.
Fold up the bottom edge up 2cm and press (the edge with the pin in it)
JOIN THE PANELS ON THE ZIP EDGE
We now join the panels along the zip side of the cushion to create the zip opening:
Lay the rear panel on top of the front panel, right sides together (face to face) and align the edges.
Unfold the bottom pressed flap.
Make sure the bottom edges (marked with a pin) are against each other.
Tack the 2 panels together along the fold line and the piping stitch line.
Machine stitch along the fold line 5cm in from each side.
Reinforce at the 2 points the stitch stops.
Remove the tacking stitches and you should now have created the zip opening.
