DIY: Curtains.

I am not such a big fan of curtains, but I have always dreamed of having colored light in the room, changing throughout the day. Not finding the exact ready-made curtains in the store, I decided to make them myself and if you have two hours and the will to design your home, you can do it yourself too. So here goes...

Find the fabric you want and measure it correctly. I chose red, green and beige for a very soft fabric that can hang loose. Of course, you can create it in how many colors and pieces you wish :)

Cut a few pieces which will be the hangers. Fold each in half, sew then bring on the right side and close with a stitch. This will hide the raw edges.

I chose a strong stitch to give the edge a nice finish. I sewed along the edges of the fabric, then I got rid of the loose threads by cutting them out.

I added the hangers...

... and simply turned them into bows. Cute, huh? Then I continued with the other pieces of fabric...

... and hanged them as well by making knots...

... and now I have my colored ever changing light!
Like it... or love it? :)
