1934 Curtain Tie-Backs

I decided it was finally time to make something to hold back my curtains, and I remembered a booklet I have from 1934 with just that type of info in it!

This booklet by Mary Brooks Picken features several designs for fabric tie-backs you can make in the "modern Singer way." I used some navy fabrics from my stash and some buttons to make view 2. (I opted for a button closure rather than loops so I wouldn't have to add any hooks or attachments to my wall.) Although they're very simple, they work great! The buttons work well for my frequent opening and closing of the curtains.

You can watch a short video of my process on Instagram as well.

I excerpted the instructions and shared them below. Which view is your favorite?
