How-to make a curtain from a scarf

Have you got a scarf that you love but never wear? Maybe you could turn it into a curtain for your home, its easy. 

All you need is a scarf
This is how to make one:
1, Measure your window first. Make sure the scarf is both long enough and wide enough to cover the window. If it is to long, cut off the extra fabric from where the top of the curtain will be (allowing for the extra length needed for the casing). 
2, Next, make a casing for your curtain pole. You can do this by folding over (to the back) the side of fabric that you want to be the top. Sew a straight line along the top leaving an inch or two margin depending on the thickness of your curtain pole. Cut off or leave any tassles/fraying on your scarf according to your preference. That is it! 
You can add a bit of vintage glamour to your window by putting up a lace panel. Lace can be dyed any colour to match the scheme you already have. No one does this better in my opinion than Pearl Lowe. You can find inspiration on her lovely website
