I am still embracing the fact that I don’t own a sewing machine. When you like to make your own things it can really put a damper on all my
crazy great ideas. But, until I feel like dropping the cash to get one I will have to stick with my stitch witchery. It does the job and I still get to create beautiful things like my new office curtains.
The next room in my home makeover is my home office and this window definitely needed some curtains. I had an idea in mind and wanted to make my own for this room
It is so simple to make no sew curtains. All you need is an iron, material and stitch witchery. A pair of scissors and a tape measure or yard stick, whichever is handy.
My office has a French Vintage theme and to stick with that theme I have chosen to use three different fabric designs.
After I cut the pieces I wanted, it was time to grab my stitch witchery and start ironing.
The first thing I did was put a hem around all the edges of the fabric. I ripped a piece of stitch witchery the length of the material and placed it on the fabric and folded the fabric over it.
Once that is done it’s time to iron the hem.
After ironing is done I have a nice clean hem all the way around my no sew curtains.
Now it’s time to make a pocket for the curtain rod and I wanted to have my curtains ruffled at the top. So, I had to make sure I folded enough over to make two pockets. I placed stitch witchery in the center of my folded fabric and ironed.
I then placed another strip of stitch witchery to the bottom of the folded fabric and ironed.
Now I have two pockets. One to ruffle and one for the curtain rod.
Now comes the creativity. I have to connect all the fabric pieces I cut and iron them together.
I placed my fabric with the right side of the fabric facing each other and ironed stitch witchery to the edge.
After I ironed the edge I opened up the fabric and ironed the seams to make them clean.
After the middle section is all ironed it’s ready to be attached to the rest of the fabric.
Time to hang my beautiful no sew curtains.
I love them!!! They dressed up my office nicely. Don’t you think?
Curtains really dresses up a room and makes it feel so warm and inviting…just the way I like it.
