How To Make Single Pleated Curtain Headings | JF Academy

Are you looking to learn how to pleat your curtain heading? Well look no further! We collaborated with local soft furnishings professional Louise, from The Cotswold Sewing School, to show you just this.

This simple 4 step guide on how to pleat curtains shows how easy it can be to create this style in your own home. This technique can also serve as a base to producing double and triple pinch pleat curtains. For this make, we used the Cheeky Monkey Linen fabric in the Multi colourway.
