A Nifty Thrifty Idea

Now that there is a chill in the air, it is time for me to swap to 'winter curtain mode'.
The long mustard velvet curtains go up in the bedroom and thermal linings are attached too!
The last couple of years I have tacked in these... unused quilted mattress cover, cut in half and just caught in with tacking along the curtain tape.

But this year, after a trip to Abakhan in Manchester, I upgraded them with bias tape to finish the edges and some lightweight slotted tape at the top.
Simple, cosy and a lot more professional looking in the front room!
Just right!
 And not costing a lot of pennies or time.

  1. Great idea and a lot more stylish than the windowfilm we use to keep the draughts out! x

  2. This will be our first winter with double glazing ... looking forward to not having to scrape the ice off the inside of the windows! M x
