A while ago I promised to make a set of curtains for a friends VW camper. Anyway last week I got word that they were attending a big VW event in London and Brighton on October 17th and would the curtains be ready??
I had set aside all spare time last weekend and this week to try to get ready for my next City & Guilds class but this is what I have been working on instead! The curtains are double sided so that they look just as good from outside as inside and I have stitched in tabs with press studs to fasten them back when open. The van is a 1960s split screen VW camper in turquoise and white. I promise to add some photos when I have them. I have done 6 pairs for the side windows and 1 pair for the back window. I still have the large curtain for the cab to do but I ran out of time.
The fabric was bought from the USA and of course I did not buy enough! Luckily I did have a personal stash of this which I am now going to have to use. This fabric is like rocking horse droppings and I cannot find any more in any of the online shops I have searched. It is from the range Lightning Bugs and other Mysteries by Heather Ross for Free Spirit Fabrics. I know that I have some readers of this blog from the US so if you do find some in your LQS please let me know!!!
