I bought a big roll of curtain header tape for 49p from the charity shop yesterday in order to make a door curtain for the porch.
I love our porch, it does an amazing job as a cold/heat trap. But it leads directly to the dining area, so it can let in a big draught. Plus I just like door curtains. Ours isn't going to be thick or bulky, just enough to be a barrier. I'm using the sheet I bought for 99p from the charity shop a few months ago. It's orange so goes well with our decor.
I decided I'd give the sewing machine a go, to get the job done quickly. after a couple of minutes of sewing I remembered why I hadn't used a sewing machine for nearly 20 years, put the machine away, made a cup of tea and set to hand sewing as I listened to the radio.
Now I just need some small curtain hooks.
