Finding Curtain Patterns

If you are one that is interested in sewing your own curtains, you might be on the look out for the perfect curtain pattern. Having a pattern for the curtains that you want to make will it make easier, and maybe even make the process of curtain making a lot smoother. However, you will find that when you are looking for a particular pattern for your curtains, there are many styles for you to choose from. From valances to panels you are going to find the styles to be quite intriguing to make as well as choose from. Many places sell patterns that you can look through for curtains, if you know where to look.

If you are lucky enough to have a local fabric store, you are going to find that they carry curtain patterns. Going to the fabric store and flipping through their pattern book just might lead you to the perfect pattern for your curtains. After you have flipped through all of the books you will then go to the huge filing cabinet to search for the pattern number that you are wanting. This will let you know if the pattern is available or not, and they should be in the cabinet in numerical order. It is always best to choose more than one pattern you are interested in, in case one is not available.

Another great place that you will find curtain patterns is online. By doing a simple search you are bound to come up with many places that will sell patterns so that you can make your own curtains. However, just be warned that a pattern is very light so shipping should not be much for any pattern that you are having mailed to your home. Also make sure that you are able to see a good picture and details of the pattern before you purchase it online. It is also not a bad idea to know your measurements, and make sure that the pattern you buy will accommodate the size curtains that you need.

You can always make your own curtain pattern out of muslin material for a few bucks. Using muslin as your pattern, you can play with that material until you get it just the way that you want it before you actually sew a real curtain. Muslin is often used for mock patterns of dresses as well as many other things. This is a great idea, and you will not have to buy a pattern any longer when you know how to do this.

As you can see, curtain patterns are available in many places. Wether you go out shopping for one, shop online, or make your own. You are sure to end up with the curtains that you have been wanting.
