Busy Sewing

 

fabric tie-back

It has been snowing here today but I didn’t really notice because I was busy making tie-backs for the new curtains.  I am quite pleased with the result although Paul and I did have some debate as to whether the window needs a pelmet or not.  In the end we decided it would make the window look too closed in so that option is on hold for the time being.

I made the tie-backs from the co-ordinating fabric that I bought to cover the headboard.  I can now choose between them and the tassel rope ones.  The new bed is due to arrive on Tuesday and then it’s just a matter of waiting for the replacement wardrobe doors to be delivered.

At this rate the room might just be ready by the time Kat returns home from Cyprus next month!

    1. It's not a very modern design but I deliberately chose something traditional.

  2. Snow in April? That's depressing but you seem to be keeping cheerful with lots to do indoors. I love the curtains, the way you have them draped so neatly. Well done!

  3. Lovely curtains and tie backs. Also can't help noticing that like mine your lawn is in desperate need of a drink.

  4. The fabric, curtains and tie backs look great. The new headboard is lovely too.
    I like your aesthetic and taste in decor. I am curious as to what pelmet designs you are debating. So many options. Kat will feel she is in a 5-star hotel when she arrives in May. Lucky girl!

    1. It would have been a plain, straight pelmet, padded and covered in the same fabric as the curtains, just coming to the top of the window. Might be something I do at a later date. There is a plain white roller blind that acts as a blackout.

  5. They look very smart. I like the lenght. Good job! It suprised me that my Curtain Maker put two hooks on the wall for the tie back.

    1. Some people consider tie-backs to be old fashioned. I just like to have the option.

  6. You have I think the same fabric as one of ur rooms - great minds / good taste and all that... I'm not for pelmets especially with such a nice rail

    1. I think the pelmet might just be too much for the size of the room.

  9. Excellent, Sue - you have done a beautiful job and it looks very elegant. Will there be a throw-over bedcover too, or co-ordinating duvet and pillow? Kat will be so delighted with such luxurious surroundings she won't want to leave!

    1. I have enough leftover fabric to make a bed throw but I will wait and see what Kat thinks about that idea.

  10. Will you be ordering a bullwhip as you dream up more home improvement projects? Paul had better watch out.
