I am very, very new to sewing I want to start out with some simple curtains/drapes—basically I am going to hem the fabric on all four sides and then hang them using curtain clips—super simple. However…
my window is huge, currently I have two 6’ wide x 9’ tall drop cloths as curtains, I want to update that window and use fabric with a print—I really LOVE the Richloom lucy eden fabric and I really have my heart set on using it.
My question is since this fabric is only 54" wide and I need it to be 72" can I sew two pieces together to make it wide enough or will that create a weird look? The fabric is $24/yard, I need a lot of it and I don’t want to buy it, sew it together and realize it looks awful.
Will I just have to use it to make pillow?? Can anyone suggest a source for wide fabrics with fun prints like the Richloom one?
