Sew OR No Sew...???

Does anyone else have a hard time with NO sew projects?

cg flat fold shade

I mean sewing for a Home Ec teacher???

Well, of course, I have found a great window treatment that I like that is YES

by Centsational Girl

If I make it, I am sure there will be some sewing!!

Anyone else have this problem?

Blessings all


  1. I've had a Roman Shades project for 3 windows in our hearth room on my 'to-do' list for going on 2 years now and I don't know why I feel so 'intimidated' as I've made many home dec window treatments through the years - just no 'working' Roman shades. Even bought all the hardware, fabric, everything - there is truly no excuse for me. I also enjoy Centsational Girl's site and checked your link and these shades are very pretty - but I did see she used a sewing machine in the very beginning! Good Luck! I'll start mine if you start yours and maybe we can motivate each other!!
    PS You produce such beautiful work on your sewing machine... I'm sure either way you make them, they will be beautiful.

  2. Funny. I usually don't do "no sew" projects either. My philosophy is that you need to sew it, so it will hold together forever.

  3. I can't quite see that as a no sew project if you really want to use it as a shade.

  4. Ha! I've come across some blogs that advocate hot gluing curtain hems and such instead of sewing them. I can see if you don't know how to sew at all but to me, it's much faster to sew a seam than use hot glue (and less frustrating too!).

  5. I must confess that I prefer a needle and thread to a glue gun........ No Sew doesn't give the idea of lasting and when I put my material and time into something I want it to last...........

  6. Yep, that's me, too. So you can make it without sewing, but that's not necessarily the BEST or ONLY way. Sometimes, that's to make the non-sewist feel like they can accomplish something normally done with needle and thread. Make it YOUR way...that will be my way, too, lol ~

  7. I don't have a problem with no sew! I just have a problem doing projects of any kind!! That curtain is sure pretty. Will look forward seeing the one you make! Nancy

  8. Even with my limited sewing skills, I prefer to sew vs. using hemming tape. I make a lot of felt pillows, but I find it easier to attach the felt pieces with hot glue.
