Clara profile image Most beautiful curtains, and so easy to make!

I needed to make some 2/3 length curtains to soften the intense summer sunshine pouring into our large front room windows, and this fabric made the most beautiful curtains ever. The open weave lets in a soft light while affording privacy, when otherwise our living room becomes something like a stage lit up by the afternoon sun. The curtains are add a nice touch when open, and provide a soft, airy look when shut. I washed the fabric in cold water, as I usually do, and am very happy with the results. The open weave is perfect. Now I'm thinking about other ideas for this fabric fabric ... after I finish the backed-up projects ahead, LOL.

Gorgeous shawl

I was a little concerned by the rating, but the reviews sold me. It's good at what it's good at, and expecting it to be what it isn't is going to cause frustration. I love it! It does come like canvas, but that makes it VERY easy to overcast before washing (it would be a disaster to skip this step!!) and pulling threads was easy, exactly as it's supposed to be. I'm doing simple embroidery along the edges both to prevent fraying and to embellish in a very simple way. I will post pictures soon.

Incredible stuff...for the right use

This linen fabric makes the most incredible washcloths ever! My husband and I are wild about them, they make you feel so clean and polished. I'm buying several yards to make more, we love them so much! I mistakenly put my review of this fabric under another type of linen but this is the one you want if you would like to have the best washcloths ever! Will never use a terrycloth washcloth again if I can help it! And so perfect with my new linen towels!!

fabulous once you understand it.

This is one of my favorite favorite fabrics. It does require some prep and special handling but you will be rewarded. You need to overlock the raw edges before washing. Wash on the hottest cycle for the longest time with your choice of suds and add softner to the rinse cycle and high spin. In the dryer medium heat checking the lint trap often.remove almost dry . Iron the whole piece..The fabric will be very supple. care will need to be taken cutting and handling pieces in sewing . overlock and staystitch as much as possible. topstitching also helps secure the loose weave.

Open weave linen, love the wrinkly look. This linen hangs beautifully.

Just finished these single panel curtains for my sewing room. I repurposed some crocheted corners from an old table cloth on the bottom of each panel. The bleached white was a perfect match for the crocheted corners and created the look I was trying to achieve.

My mother's Christmas gift - semi-sheer linen kitchen curtains with a hand-crocheted lace insert. IL041 Bleached is a beautiful off-white, with quite a large weave, making it semi-sheer but sufficiently opaque to block outsiders from looking in. Lets in light beautifully, is very easy to sew, and does shed a lot of lint at first.

Detail of hemstitching.

Unacceptable color when it's called bleached white. The bottom is the fabric, the top are the white linen sheets its supposed to match
