Therefore, use the idea offered below, and incredibly popular in 2014 and make for your apartment a beautiful decoration. The proposed option will look awesome in both closed and unfolded form. All calculations are given on one panel. But you can easily produce the number of curtains you need, independently from the height of the curtains and the size of your window. How to make calculations you will find out below.
For the production of bright curtains for the kitchen you will need:
To start, we will make measurements: For this we make simple calculations. Each window can have its own parameters, so we show you a typical example of calculation, focusing on which and substituting your numbers, you will be able to calculate your specific situation. Total height of curtains From curtain to floor heightLeft 215 cm away from this figure a few centimeters. This is necessary so that the curtain does not drag on the floor and does not get dirty. As a result, we get - 210 cm. Loops. The standard dimensions of the loops are 6 cm from the edge of the curtain to the curtain. Height To determine the final height, simply subtract the dimensions of the loops. It will be 210 cm. - 6 cm. 204 cm. The length of the fabric of the upper part. Our curtains consist of several parts. Therefore, you need to measure the length of each. The top part should be about a fifth of the entire length. Approximately 40 cm. Decorative frill A dividing strip of fabric also passes between the bottom and top. But it is sewn, so it can be left out of account for the final length of the product. The lower part of the bottom is the rest of the length of 204 - 40 = 164 cm. Allowances should also be added to the hem of the bottom in the upper and lower parts. Be sure not to forget the allowances for seams between parts. Hinges All hinges bend in half so 6 cm is half their size. We'll add more places where the buttons are fastened - about 5 cm. And leave 1 cm for the allowances. Total on the loop goes 17 cm. In the same way, you can simply calculate the necessary parameters for your case simply by substituting your data. Then we go directly to sewing. First we harvest 6 loops. Fold in half and lock the hinges so that the back side was up. We use the straight seam and do not forget about the allowance of 1 cm. We spread out all the edges starting from the smallest one and fixing the corners. Now you can unscrew and iron. Then we lay one more line from above. The next step is to connect the frills of the products. To do this, fold the frill in half so that the wrong side is on top. We are stuck along the edge of the lower part which is untreated. And sew it with a hand sewn to the top. Do not forget about the allowance we spend to the restproduct top. Then all this is ironed. Only after that we adjust the seam on the upper part of the future curtains. Further we pass to the bottom edge. To start, make a double gateway to the bottom. Then turn off by 10 cm and iron, again turn off now by 10 cm and iron again. The line must be laid as close as possible to the bend. Next, we do everything the same with the lining. The next step is to sew around the perimeter of the lining and curtains. To do this, we trim the front side upward with our curtains, and on top of it we put the lining, but now face down. The edges must coincide, only the length of the lining should be 12 cm smaller, as shown in the diagram below. Then you will need to attach loops and stitchthem on the top edge of the curtains. For this, put our loops between the lining and the curtain. Align the edges. The distance between the loops should be 14 cm. Do not forget, if you use your own measurements, you can get other distances. Continue the stitching, while keeping in mind the allowances of 1 cm. The next step is to attach the upper tape. It is necessary in order not to sag between the loops. We put our tape upside down and stab with the curtain naturally given the allowance. Next, you need to unscrew and fasten our loops. To do this, turn the product face up. All seams must remain inside. Then gently pull out the loops and rot them tofront side of the curtain in half. We pierce, decorate, previously prepared buttons using a sewing machine, or manually lay a seam. In the corner of the product must remain untreated edge. Bend it. Using small stitches, using threads in tone to the rest of the curtain, we sew the frill to the fabric. The last stage is garters. They must be strengthened by several centimeters of connective tissue. Take 50 by 5 strips. Then we will prick and sew squares with parameters 12 by 12 cm. The sides of the squares must coincide on the sides of the garter. The resulting garter bends in half. We fix the connective tissue. Straighten leaving an empty edge under the turn. We fix the corners. We turn out, after adjusting the edges. We also process the end, which was left and lay the facial suture. We fold our squares in half and, putting a line, we pass the rings. For each detail, it is unforgettable to sew decorative buttons. That's all. A magnificent bright curtain for the kitchen is ready!
