Winter Window Shades

If you need a pair of winter shades to decorate your front door, designs from the Winter Set are a great choice. For this project, you will need: white fabric for the shades, patterned fabric for the ruffle and loops, matching double fold bias tape and decorative buttons.

Step One: Cut the shades out of white fabric. Stabilize with water-soluble stabilizer and embroider the designs. Place the shades into a bowl of water to dissolve the stabilizer, then air dry. Press.

Step Two: Finish the upper and side edges with the double fold bias tape.

Step Three: To decorate the lower edge of the shades, cut 2 strips 5" wide and 1 1/2" longer than the bottom edge of each shade. Finish the edges of the strips with zigzag.

Stitch two rows of gathering threads along the strip, 1/2" and 1/4" from one edge. Pull the gathering threads to fit the lower side of each shade. Baste or pin to the lower edge of the shade and machine stitch.

Step Four: For the loops, cut 2" x 5" strips out of patterned fabric. Fold them lengthwise, face inwards, and stitch the edge. Turn inside-out and press. Finish the short raw edges and attach to the upper edge of the shade. We used decorative buttons to fasten the loops.
