    blackout linings on curtains

    My husband works nights occassionally and needs the bedroom really dark in the day so he can sleep. Our last curtains had blackout linings made into them and we have a blackout blind. We are now redecorating and have bought new curtains which match the bedding. What is the best way to add a blackout lining? They are eyelet curtains and I would call myself a beginner on the sewing machine. Any advice would be great as I am really not sure where to begin.

    Hi all, I am fairly new to sewing, but really eager to try my hand at making things out of my own and childrens old clothes, be it altering for new clothes or making other pretty things. Trouble is I am not really sure where to start. Can anyone give any advise on good websites or books to give me a start? Many thanks Sally

    Backing papers

    Thanks for the new kit - great to get something not Christmassy! Just wondering if backing papers are going to be available for download (or where I can buy) as they are fab this month.
