This is a guide to all the skills and techniques needed to make every type of curtain and window decoration for a doll's house. Projects include: pelmets; valances; lambrequins; blinds; curtains; looped headings; swags; tiebacks; gathering; and pleating.
Contemporary dolls' houses have beautifully made and truly authentic-looking windows -- so give them the treatment they deserve! With curtains, drapes, swags, and more you'll design a little "vignette" around each window area that speaks for itself and connects with the room's interior decoration. Start by selecting the right construction tools and materials, from polystyrene tile to trimmings and brass fittings. The simple techniques range from measuring and drawing patterns to sewing basics. Make wooden roller blinds from cocktail sticks; elegant valances in soft velvet; charming cafe curtains for a kitchen; and period styles, including Regency and Victorian. And the complete design schemes -- from a cherub-and-pearl pelmet and curtains to sweet half curtains held by teddy bears -- will enchant you!
