How to Sew Window Curtains
You will need to measure your window and add 40 inches to your
length and add 2 inches for your width. Our window was 125 x 43 so
our curtain measurement was 165 inches x 45 inches. Now that is too
much for one curtain so we are making 4 panels each 42 x 45 inches.
Cut your fabric into the correct measurements and however many
panels you may or may not be needing.
Take each curtain panel you cut and turn the edges down 1/4
inch and 1/4 inch again. Hem all around edges.
To make your curtain tabs, determine how many tabs you'd like
usually 8 tabs for a 45 inch curtain works well or a tab every 5
inches. Determine how many tabs in total you will need, depending on
how many panels you are making. Each tab should be 4x7 but you can
make these larger or wider as you'd like as long as they are all cut
out the same length. Cut the number of tabs needed from your fabric.
Match right sides together on your tabs and sew along edge.
Turn inside out.
Take your hemmed panel curtain and fold in half. This will help you
find the middle of your panel. Pin your tabs on the wrong side
pinning equal distance on top of your curtain panel. Sew into place
straight across the top.
Continue with all your panels and hang on a rod as shown below.
