No Sew Curtains

I don’t sew but I wish I did. My mom has made every one of my elaborate costumes as a child (all from scratch)! I took one class if you count Home Economics in High School. I know how to use a sewing machine but it’s just not my thing (maybe someday). For the boys playroom I wanted some fun curtains without the work of sewing.

I ordered the fabric I wanted online along with my supplies. this project was so easy and I did it all while the boys were napping. Once I decided how long I wanted my curtains and had all my fabric cutdown all I had to do was hem all the edges with peel and stick fabric fuse that comes in a roll from Hobby Lobby.

I would first measure how much fabric I wanted to fold over and then went over each edge with my iron. Now that all my edges are ironed down I just simply have to cut my fabric fuse down to size and place it between the fabric I pre-ironed. Now all I have to do is iron over the seam I created and the fabric fuse fuses both pieces of fabric together. I repeated this for every edge. On the ends where the ¬†corners will be, I made an inwards cut so that I wouldn’t have to worry about bunched up fabric.

To hang them I used the hoops that have clips on them that can easily just clip to the fabric. The clips work great, however if you have young children who like to hang and pull on your curtains the fabric may be yanked from the hooks from time to time. This is such an easy and inexpensive project.
