Pink Chevron Nursery Curtains

Well, it's no secret that I had a blast getting the nursery ready for our sweet pea. Even though it was months ago, I still have lots of nursery tutorials to catch up on! 
If you haven't checked out the pink and white tulle pom poms I made for her room, you can read the tutorial here. 

Her curtains were my 2nd favorite thing to make besides the poms, so here's my shot at explaining how I made them. 
I''m not gonna lie, I am a little obsessed with chevron print! I was so excited to find this pink chevron print that perfectly matched the colors of sweet pea's nursery.
I ordered the fabric from Babby Bedding and ended up spending less than if I had bought curtains. And really, they were super easy to make!
Check out that beautiful fabric!
As you can see from the photo below, I added a solid pink block at the bottom of the drapes just to add a little variety. I love the way they turned out! 
I made each panel 84"x25" (The solid pink at the bottom was approximately 12"x25".

I cut 2 chevron panels 72"x25" and 2 solid pink panels 12"x25".

First I sewed the two pieces together and then ironed the seams under before hemming them.

For the ties at the top, I cut 12 trips of the solid pink fabric about 16"x4" and then sewed them in half leaving one end open. Then I turned them inside out, folded them in half and sewed them to the top of the drapes to tie on to the curtain rod. It worked out quite well!

You can play with the measurements to get the look you're going for. I had fun experimenting with mine and I love the way they look in her room! I even made some matching pillows with the leftover fabric...

  5. Your curtains are beautiful! I made some for Julie's office window and kitchen but she used the curtain rings. If you like Chevron, check out the variety of CHEVRON INFINITY SCARVES that Angie is selling on her website: www.facebook.com/pages/Sew-Blessed/198182723661330?ref=ts&fref=ts
