Curtain tutorial

This is not an item that can be worn but these curtains were dead easy to make. I measured the window area and determined the drop or length the curtains had to be.

Then I took the width and since I wanted two curtains, divided the width in half. For fuller curtains you need to double the width. For curtains like these I added 50% onto the width.

Then I added  my seam allowance all around the outside of the curtains. I hemmed the entire outer area of the curtains. I will show how they are hung tomorrow on – this link.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
