Easy Sew Curtains

Curtains are an easy way to add color, texture and pizazz to a room.

However, it can be hard to find the perfect pre-made curtain when you have something particular in mind. Plus, curtains can be so expensive!

Making a curtain panel from a fabric you like can be an easy, frugal option.

These curtains are very easy to make, with only minimal sewing.

I started with an Indian sari picked up an international store. You could use any piece of fabric and either hem the edges or just leave them raw.

I folded the short edge of the fabric and sewed one seam to create a rod pocket at the top. I then used a hot glue gun and pasted a coordinating ribbon over the seam to hide the stitches.

For the tie-back, I used the same coordinating ribbon and sewed a loop to hold the fabric.

With just one seam, you can create perfect custom curtains!

This curtain is in our powder room, where we also have a custom distressed picture frame.
