      Hi Cat,

      Thank you. They are not interlined - I've never interlined curtains as none of my customers so far have asked for interlining. I think it's a cost issue as interlining is very expensive here in Ireland. I made a pair of curtains last week for my bedroom and am now sorry I didn't attempt interlining them as the sun is shining through I wonder could I add sarrel (not sure if I have that right) as the curtains are short and I don't want too much bulk?

      Love the eyelet press, worth every penny I spent on it.

      Ursula.

        Hi there,
        Yes they look lovely, what size eyelets did you use?
        You could use a black-out lining for your bedroom curtains,I think that you would still get sun coming through if you used a light weigh sarril interlining.
        Is it that you just can't get interlining in Ireland, Perhaps there's an opening there for a supplier....?. We would normally pay something like £2.45 for the 260 g or £2.68 for the 410g.
        kind regards. Helen

          Yes we can get interlining in Ireland, not sure of the price though. I make curtains here also and not many ask for interlined curtains, i have only been asked once over the passed 10 years tg.
          Ursula your curtains look fab, i also bought a eyelet press recently and its the best machine i ever got, they look more professional when made up. Do you get your eyelets here in Ireland....?

              Hi All,

              Like Jan said interlined curtains aren't very often asked for, maybe that's just here in Ireland. I'm not long in the business but have never been asked to interline. You can purchase interling here but it is expensive as far as I can remember. Would it be easy now to interline curtains already made up?

              The eyelets are 40mm and I bought a few boxes when purchasing the press. Like everything else in Ireland we're being ripped off as far as pricing is concerned, so I'll source in U.K. if I can get them cheaper.

                Helen,

                I have justed finished hemming the bedroom curtains and rehung as they were only pinned. I'm too lazy to reline them with blackout now as another job is due. I have been searching around for a nice blackout lining and the one from Edmund Bell (probably the most expensive I don't have a price) is the nicest but I think you have to have an account. I think I'll go and order with Evans -supersoft standard cream 3 pass - which is very reasonable and they are very efficient with sending samples etc., Again blackout is not something I've been asked to use so I'll have to plug it when it arrives.

                  Hi there, I would recommend Hallis Hudson Supersoft blackout lining. Its very nice to work with and drapes well.
                  Its not as ' rubbery' as some of the others. It might be worth your while to try to get a few samples before you start as some blackouts are not very ' curtain / needle' friendly.

                    Hi there again,
                    Re black-out lining, why not try Merrick and Day, you can buy anything fron one mt upwards @ £2.92 per mt. Obviously, cheaper the more you buy. I;ve used it for curtains and blinds, and its fine.
                    regards Helen

                      Have to say, since using Evans supersoft blackout, I won't go back to M&D's blackout for curtains (and I shall use what I have left for interlining blackout romans). It really is noticably softer & drapes so much better.

                        Beautiful job!

                        How did you treat the heading? Is there buckram? If yes what type did you use.

                        Is there a double fold of face fabric to the back of the heading?

                        Sorry to hear interlining material is so costly where you live. Here in the USA I use it in almost everything from curtains to top treatment to pillows. But interlining does not cut light so you will have to use a blackout method or material for that as others have suggested.

                        Thanks for sharing!

                          I love the material you have made these curtains from - it looks particularly nice with the eyelet heading. Would love to know who supplied it, and what is the name of it?

                            Hi Girls,

                            Thanks for the comments. The fabric

                            Ursula is prestigious and the shade is ivory and as far as I can remember it's called peru but not sure as the customer supplied it. I had only 1" to spare to turn over at the top and used sew in light buckram which worked out great.
