When I first started shopping for my craft room curtain panels, I couldn’t find anything in the stores that totally wooed me. I found TONS of amazingly colorful, vibrant fabrics online, but well… I don’t know how to sew and was a little terrified of the process.
So while I’ve never actually tried no-sew curtains before, I wanted to take that risk. I mean, how hard could it be to wing it? Apparently not very, cause I feel like I nailed it. And aaaah, I’m in love. Now let me show you how I got my no-sew groove on…
First of all, I want to thank everyone that voted for this Braemore Gorgeous Petal Fabric last month. It’s so dreamy in person! And thick. Awesomely enough I didn’t have to line these curtains due to that fact.
So first thing I did was measure and cut (2) curtain panels at 100 inches each. The ceiling is 8ft tall (96 inches) but I needed room for a clean “hemline” so I added 4 inches on the top and bottom, minus the 4 inches that the curtains would hang down from the ceiling.
96 inch floor-to-ceiling length – 4 inch rod hang down + 8 inches for hems
= 100 inch panels lengths each
The toughest part is making sure your measurements are done correctly, especially with hanging the curtains a few inches off the ceiling on the rod. I was pretty spot-on with mine, but if you want you can finish the sides and top, hang on the rod, then pin the bottom seam before you use the Heat n Bond.
Still impressed with myself that I created these
beautiful no sew curtains in one evening!
And did I mention how much I LOVE this fabric?
Ellie actually cried when she found out these were for my craft room and not her bedroom. Mother of the Year here. Well, I guess I foresee another no sew curtain project in my near future for that little ladybug.
A huge thanks to the Online Fabric Store who provided the fabric.
