INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Cut two of each fabric. White (23"x38"), black (10" x 38"), and dusty blue (63" x 38"). This will create two 96"x 38" completed panels. Set the black and blue piece aside and lay the first white piece flat.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Line up the stencil. Using a stencil brush, apply Black Tie. Be careful not to move the stencil or fabric while painting.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Continue stenciling until the entire piece is stenciled. Allow the paint to dry before painting each new section.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Be sure to continue the stencil all the way to the edge. A 1/2" from the edge is okay as it will be hidden in the seams. Repeat process for other white panel. Allow paint to dry completely before sewing.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Once dried, sew the right sides togther with a 1/2" inseam.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Iron the seams open. Lay a scrap of fabric on top of the stenciling portion.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Trim off any extra fabric so your have a straight edge on all four sides.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Fold over the top edge as well as all side edges 1/2" and iron.
    Step 7 Example
  9. Sew the 1/2" down (use just under a 1/2" in inseam) to form a finished edge on the top and sides.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Fold 2" on the bottom of the curtain. Iron in place and sew. This will create the hem.
    Step 9 Example
  11. Attach curtain hooks. If needed, iron curtains before hanging.
