I just finished up some new curtains for DD, at a whopping 8 years old I felt it was time to replace the faded Winnie the Pooh Bear ones back from her nursery days. I took what my mother taught me years ago about using two layers of fabric to create a light blocking effect and made these using a beautiful hand made batik on one side and a coordinating solid purple on the reverse. Now should I decide to make tie backs I will made them using the last little bit of batik fabric that I have. That way the curtains can be turned so that the purple side shows with a bit of batik detail or the simple batik as shown here.
