  • How to construct a simple lined curtain

    I have made this basic video for lined a curtain with mitred corners. Click on the play button to start the video..

    NB. Cutting off the excess fabric is optional and not necessary.

      Great Video

      Much easier than the way I have been taught, but where did you get you rectangular ruler you used for the hems, I use a pattern master but yours seems easier?

        Hi JE..

        They are called patchwork rulers - you can buy them from John Lewis in the craft dept. Or eBay have a good selection in both imperial and metric.

        Welcome to the forum!

            That particular one is 6" x 24" it is perfect for curtain hems and side turnings 45- I also use a 16cm x 16cm and 16cm x 60cm for marking out rod pockets.

              Excellent video Philip, well done. Can I suggest you put all the videos together in one area so that twits like me can find them easily and just spend an evening's viewing learning from the grat master!!!

              Many thanks for the instruction

                That's how I was taught! - only with a 3" side turning too.

                    Hi Philip,
                    Do you think that the hem on the main fabric and the side seam where the lining joins the main fabric could be blind stitched rather than slip stitched? Lizziesi

                      You can use a blind hemmer on both the hem and sides if you wish.

                          Ebay, you'll find a 60cm ruler here, I have 1 metre and a 60cm ruler.

                            Hi Philip,
                            May I just confirm whether you have machined the double 2 inch lining hem before you put it onto the main fabric? If not, how do you stop the lining hem from falling down?

                              Hi Lizziesi

                              Yes, the hem is machined sewn first.
