You will need –
- Fabric (check out this list of my favorite online fabric stores)
- tape measure
- sewing machine, pins, and thread OR
- hemming tape
Next you will need to measure and cut your fabric. Measure the length from the top of your curtain rod to the floor and then add 12 inches. Mine measured 92 inches, so I cut the fabric to 104 inches each.
Next you’re going to need to hang the curtains in order to hem them to the correct length.
I wanted my curtains to look like back tab curtains (which I show you how to make here) without actually having to sew back tabs. So I bought these rings from Amazon and clipped them to the back of the curtain instead if the top, like so…
To do this you will need to lay your curtain out flat to make sure your rings are evenly spaced. Then just pinch a section and add your clip, making sure the top of the ring is about even with the top of the curtain.
Once your curtains are hung, fold up the bottoms so that the curtains barely graze the floor and pin in place.
Then take it down, hem it, and hang it back up. Done! Cheap and easy custom curtains!
