DIY Curtains

DIY-CurtainsI have done this a dozen times! My Mom taught me this, and I’m going to share this technique with you.

You will be needing these items: fabric of any kind and color, a roll of Stitch Witchery (can be found at craft and fabric stores), Iron, Ironing board, thin damp cotton clot, curtain rod , and drapery clip rings . First off, you need to measure your window.

Take note and record your measurements and make sure you take them to the fabric store with you to get the accurate measurements of the fabric. Also, buy the things you need in making the curtains. A tip though, choose a fabric that will match your wall color. Curtains can make a statement in your home.

Remember, go for what you have in mind, and just purchase the correct amount of fabric. Once you have the things, measure the window one last time and cut your fabric into two equal-sized panels. Remember you will be hemming both the top and the bottom part of the panel, so account for one inch on both ends.

Next up, fold over 1/2 inch of fabric and iron a small seam all the way around each side of the panel. Insert the stitch witchery inside the seam and press down with the iron for 10 seconds in one spot. Slowly move around the entire panel until the stitch witchery seams together. l suggest placing a thin, damp cloth between the iron and the curtain panel, to ensure the fabric does not burn.

Once you’re done, hang the panel on the curtain rod using drapery clip rings with space 4 inches apart. Then, you’re done!
