Sewing Projects for The Home - Curtains from Vintage Scarves - Free DIY Sewing Patterns, Easy Ideas and Tutorials for Curtains, Upholstery, Napkins, Pillows and Decor #homedecor #diy #sewing

A vintage scarf from a flea market or yard sale can be a hard thing to pass up. So hard, in fact, that you might find yourself with quite the collection. If your scarf stash is getting a bit out of control, this could be the perfect project for you! This is a great project for beginners, or in my case, the “all I have to do is look at the machine and it breaks” type. If you can sew a semi-straight line, you can make a curtain out of scarves!
