Hi everyone! In the past I've shared a tutorial post on how to make lined drapes from start to finish. If you'd like to see that tutorial...click HERE.
Today, I want to share a faster version of lined drapes...using pre-made cheaper drapes first!! The cheaper drapes become your lining.
I wanted new drapes in my daughter Kelsie's room, but didn't want the full project. I needed quick and easy and to use what I already had hanging in her room. I used what she had as the lining for the new.
Here's the new look...
Sorry I didn't have a pre picture of the drapes in her room before, but they were tan black out drapes from Walmart for $10.00.
That's the QUICK part of this project. I used those drapes as the pre-made lining of the new drapes.
Sew hem on the bottom of the fabric you want to show in the room.
Lay the pre-made drapes that are now your lining, right side up on the floor. I used enough of the printed fabric to match the length of the pre-made drapes plus a little more for one hem on the bottom and about 1-2 inches to hang longer than the lining.
The pre-made drapes are wider than the fabric off the bolt, so I had to trim it away.
Cheap pre-made drapes for lining and decorative fabric...right sides together.
The store bought drapes at Walmart happen to be black out drapes...not bad for $10.00.
Now sew up one long side, across the top and down the other side. You will be leaving the hemmed end open.
Turn right side out and iron all seams.
The old drapes are now the lining!!
I used the rod and clips to hang them.
The curtains and pillows are Waverly Pinwheel Parade I bought at a local fabric store...cheap! The chevron fabric is from Hobby Lobby.
The quilt and shams are from Ikea!!
