From Beth: Rachel shows how to embellish curtains with her Cut Out Curtains Tutorial. Enjoy her tutorial, her intro below and her Design Fix blog.

Although Rachel’s mother taught her to sew (scrunchies!) at the age of 10, her love of design blossomed during her time as a Costume Design major in college. Since then her passion has moved from clothing to home decor. She tries to stay as creative as she can while keeping her house clean enough to entertain friends with her husband after her one year old son goes to bed.
