Is just the book you need to get in the redo groove!
It is an easy, get-started guide to creating your own curtains, drapes, and shades.
Easy SINGER Style Quick and Easy Window Treatments teaches readers how to create simple, stylish window treatments for every room in the house. The author provides her own shortcuts and secrets for saving time while achieving professional-quality results. The 15 projects include lined and unlined curtains and drapes; straight, balloon, and shaped valences; and Roman shades--in a variety of casual and elegant fabrics and styles suited to every type of room setting.
This is the fourth book in the Easy SINGER Style series, designed for beginning and brand-new sewers who are looking for quick and easy projects with a fresh, contemporary style. As with the other books in the series, the early chapters present all the basic information the reader needs to get started. Later chapters introduce specific construction techniques--and a choice of several projects showcasing those techniques. Readers gradually build skills as they apply and master what they learn, building confidence as they go.
This book features the same, step-by-step, accessible approach as the other books in the series, in keeping with Singer's reputation for reliable, practical instruction.

So grab some hot new (or vintage) fabric and get sewing a fresh new look for Spring!
Hmmm, denim, belt loops? I think I feel a recycled denim belt loop valance coming on. What do you think?
