This one was created to use as a backdrop at a wedding reception. Wanting something soft and wispy, I replaced the traditional beads with strips of fabric and ribbon, and I added some punched and die cut shapes.
Using a Fiskars rotary cutter, acrylic ruler, and cutting mat, I cut strips of different fabrics in widths varying from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inch wide and a length of 6 feet. When fabrics that were not 72 inches long, I just stitched 2 lengths together to create a 6 foot long strip. Using a sewing machine, I stitched each strip to a 1 1/2 inch wide x 35 inch long strip of fabric.
Next, I used the Fiskars Fuse and the Scalloped Square die to cut burlap squares. I treated the edges of these with Fray-Check to prevent them from unraveling while I was working with them.
I folded each square in half, placed it over the top edge of the fabric strips, and stitched them down. The opening at the top of each square creates a pocket to later slip a dowel rod through.
When finished with the construction of the curtain, I draped pom-pom trim and a paper flower (also created using the Fuse) to the top. I randomly made short stitches along the top and pulled about 10 inch lengths of thread and bobbin thread from my sewing machine before cutting the threads. I then sandwiched the ends of the threads between 2 punched shapes. The curtain was complete after adding a key hole diecut.
The finished curtain is ready to hang behind a cake table or gift table.
6 foot long strips of fabric cut from a variety of muslin and pink sheer fabrics; 1/4 yard burlap; 1 1/4 yard pom-pom trim (optional); patterned papers, book paper, and/or sheet music (optional); thread; stamping ink; cardstock; Fray-Check (or other liquid adhesive); thin dowel rod (thick enough to support the weight of the curtain but thin enough to slide through the pocket)
