How to Make Curtains:

You don’t need to be an expert DIY or Home Deco expert to know how to make curtains for your living room. Here is a step-by-step guide to making a DIY curtain:

Step #1: Measure the Fabric – measure the fabric to ensure you have the correct size.

Step #2: Cut your fabric – You can cut curtains, pom poms, table runners, you name it. The key is to cut with a specific pattern in mind. If you do not have a pattern, then you are hoping to cut a piece of fabric in a way that will fit a window.

Step #3: Pin & sew 1 side – Start by pinning the two pieces together, so the ruffles of fabric don’t pull through the fabric and onto the floor. Then, with a hand sewing needle and thread, sew along the side of the fabric to create your hem.

Step #4: Sew the 2nd side – Find the fabric’s center and lining, mark that point, then pin the fabric as well as lining together. Work out from its center towards the sides using a sewing machine. 

Step #5: Iron the curtain – Ironing a curtain can be an arduous process, but with the right steps, it doesn’t have to be. The final result will be a beautiful curtain that looks great, is crease-free, and is ready to hang. 

Step #6: Hang the curtain – Run the curtain rod through the pocket, then hang or attach it to brackets in your wall. And wow, your window is complete.

While the idea of making curtains might seem daunting to some, it can be a fun and rewarding DIY project.
