The hamster clearly has taste! Seriously, are they near the bottom so that you could just turn up the hem an inch or so and hide them?

No they are at one end but half way up! Gonna have to come clean I think and pay for some new ones! sad

I'd try stitchin the hole from behind and just iron a fold into that bit of the curtain! lol. Anything is worth a go! the curtains I had when I moved into my last quarter had a few botched repairs on the back of them! if its a big hole tho?? maybe u'll end up comin clean!

I might give that a go, it's reasonably big but as you say with a crease in the right place............. or maybe I should just come clean. How much do you reckon a new pair of gopping DHE curtains will cost?

Think yourself lucky its just 2 holes in curtains grin. our dog has chewed the door frame, skirting board, and door. There is a big hole in the wall where he chewed a socket off the wall and then started digging, there is no paint left below a certain height on the wall and there is a hole in the dining room carpet!<sigh>

We moved into a quarter once and the people before us had put up a new (nicer!) curtain pole and (lovely non DHE) floor length cream curtains up and the guy doing our march in just said 'oooh how lucky are you!?'
We asked if that was ok to replace stuff and he said 'aslong as its neutral and clean we've got no problem with it.'
Our last quarter had pale pink walls in the bedroom and again we were told 'aslong as its neutral.'
Just phone your local HIVE and ask them, they're usually quite good.
The quarter we've just moved into has absolutely no curtains in it at all! One hideous extreme to another!
