Sew Fabulous! Annie Sloan Fabric Collection Tutorial 3

Swedish Blind
Annie Sloan, creator of the internationally successful Chalk Paint®, has unveiled her new Fabric Collection, made to complement her Chalk Paint® decorative paint line. She has honed this collection from her most popular designs and her own favourites. The fabrics are sourced from France and Belgium and come in a range of styles -- a bit of boho chic, a bit of French, a bit of country, and a bit of modern.

Over the last couple of days we have featured Tutorial 1, a trimmed edge cushion/pillow and Tutorial 2, a gathered heading curtain.  In today's tutorial, Annie Sloan demonstrates a simple technique for creating a Swedish blind using fabrics from her Fabric Collection.  The fabrics shown here are Charcoal Pastorale and Paris Noir et Lin.

You can do this at home -- either sew by hand or machine. All you'll need is a bit of fabric, curtain lining, curtain rod, velcro, wooden batten, measuring tape, staple gun, scissors, pins, and a needle and thread.

View our oversized 3 yd sample swatches in-store and order your fabric in time for Valentine's Day!
