I got this itch to make new curtains for my sewing space a while ago. But, the fabric I wanted was $20 a yard, which I wasn’t willing to spend. Fast forward to last week, went I saw at Joann’s that it was 50 % off and I decided it was time to get going and make the curtains. I bought 6 yards of fabric which was perfect for 2 curtains (my curtain rods are pretty high) and they touch the floor perfectly.
I had previously decided that I wanted tab-top curtains, so I also grabbed some grosgrain ribbon that matched and went to work. (I tend to decide things like “tab-topped curtains” while lying in bed trying to sleep–I know I am crazy.)
Here’s what I left out of my picture taking…..
I did serge the top and bottom edges of the fabric. I turned the top over 2.5 inches and pressed the line really well. (Or you could just turn it over twice—but remember I was in fast-mode.)
