How to Dress Up Your Curtain with a Crochet Tiebackcomments (10) May 17th, 2013
Make a few crocheted flowers to accent your band. I used my free pattern-work as directed to make 1 large flower (shown in yellow), and work through round 2 only to make a medium flower (shown in gold). I used this free pattern to make the tiny flower. Of course, you can use any flower pattern you like, and feel free to mix and match. Here's a list of a whole bunch of free flower patterns for you.
Weave in the ends of the flowers, sew buttons to their centers (if desired) and then arrange them on the tieback. Fold the tieback in half first, with the short ends facing the side that your curtain will be pulled to. Arrange and sew on the flowers to the front half only of the tieback to be sure you'll see them all.
Next, you'll need to attach a ring to the inside of each short edge as shown below. With a length of yarn, make a few stitches around the ring to secure it, then weave in the yarn ends.
Wrap the tieback around your curtain, and slide the rings over the hook in your wall-voila!
I'd love to see finished photos of this project if you decide to make it.
