1  Anyone made a fabric-covered memo board with criss-cross front? in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by polkadotmocha on: February 10, 2007 08:07:26 AM
ok, there must be a technical name for these, but I want something like this:

and was wondering if anyone could give me some hints on home to make one? What is a suitable backing board, do you need to put padding underneath, what kind of tape do you use and how do you affix it at each 'cross'?

Thanks in advance  Grin

2  Help me make curtains for the first time! in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by polkadotmocha on: February 07, 2007 06:38:36 AM
Ok, so I want to make curtains for my living room.  I have never done this before but do really wantto learn.  Can you lovely girls help me? 

I have picked out my fabric, it is the one at the bottom of this picture:

I want to have quite a simple top, I was thinking about using an eyelet top kind of like this:

Do you think that could work with this fabric?  I am in the UK and have found a few places you can buy eyelets here, you buy the rings and it looks like you either get something to punch holes in the fabric included, or else you cut with scissors once you've fitted the rings.... has anyone ever worked with these eyelets, and is it easy or difficult?  Is using the normal sort of curtain tape easier or harder than this?  Can anyone suggest some nice simple,clean-looking curtain top possibilities? (I mean possibilities for fixing it to a curtain rail).

I would be really grateful to anyone who could give me some pointers for simple curtain patterns.  Also, I don't even know how much fabric to buy!  My window is about 180cm by 180cm, so it's big.  The fabric width is 140cm.  Fortunately the stripes will make it quite easy to join widths together, but how much fabric do I need? How many fabric widths are you supposed to have across your window?

Thanks so, so much in advance for any help that anyone can offer me!
