Therefore, you need to think about the basic idea of design. Ideal for a room in which the hostess spends most of its time, will be airy and light kitchen curtains.

Beautifully look at the window curtains, sewn onthe domino principle. For their production any flowing material is suitable, but we will sew them from color chiffon. We need two pieces of fabric, larger than the kitchen window a half and a half wide and 30 centimeters in length. To curtains combined with other elements of the kitchen, we take cuts of different colors. In addition to the fabric, we will need a special curtain belt and an oblique bake of sufficient length to handle two cuts on three sides. The colors are well combined: yellow and blue, green and white, red and yellow, but you can choose any suitable combination.
Making curtains with our own hands begin withprocessing edges with oblique bake on three sides. Without finishing, there remains the edge to which the curtain braid will be sewn. After processing the edges, we put pieces of fabric on each other, equalizing the open edges and stabbing with needles on the open cut. We fold the fabric and curtain tape with the faces and sew. We turn the ribbon inside out and, attaching the needles, sew the open edge to the fabric, hiding the untreated cut inside. We collect the curtain, pulling the string in the ribbon to the size of our window, and we get beautiful folds. We hang the curtains on the curtain.
Now you need to fix each sheet toto different sides of the window opening with the help of sticks and you can admire the finished work. Passing through the sun's rays, the curtain will cast multicolored glare on kitchen utensils, and create a joyful mood.
If your house has accumulated a lot of stripe chiffonor organza, you can make a unique curtain in the kitchen. It is enough to cut the stripes, the same length, slightly more than the height of the window and sew them into one sheet, processing the cuts with the help of an overlock or an oblique bake. The upper edge should be sewn onto the curtain tape, and the bottom cut to be processed in any way you like. To decorate the curtains, you can use anything that is at hand. It can multicolored beads, beautiful buttons, flowers from organza.
Having at his disposal only one canvastransparent fabric and pieces of multi-colored satin ribbon with beads, you can sew a simple, but beautiful curtain for the kitchen. To begin with, we process the edges of the cut of the fabric. You can just sew. For each tape string beads in random order, fixing on both sides knots. We lay out our prepared tapes on the fabric, leveling them along the untreated upper edge, and sewing. After this, we sew the curtain belt and suspend the finished curtain. Tapes with beads should hang freely down against the background of a monophonic canvas.
