Picture of No Sew Boho Curtains

Make professionally finished curtains without a sewing machine! Not one single stitch!

Step 1: Watch the Video Tutorial Here!

Step 2: You'll Need

Picture of You'll Need

Pashmina scarf (I like the ones with fringe)

Iron

E-6000 Stitchless Iron-On Glue

Scissors

Masking tape

1/2" yard of matching cotton fabric

Step 3: Measure and Cut

Picture of Measure and Cut

Cut each side of the scarf 3 1/2" less than the measurement of your finished curtains

*Example: If your curtain length is 34" then cut the scarf 30 1/2" long

Cut the two pieces of matching cotton that are 9" long and 1" wider than the width of your scarf

Press 1/2" on each of the 9" sides of your cotton fabric

Seal them down with E-6000 Stitchless and press until the moisture is gone

Step 4: Press

Flip the cotton over to the finished side

Add masking tape 1/2" along one edge

Add E-6000 Stitchless along the masking tape and smoosh it along the tape with your fingers

Place the cotton on the face of the scarf panel

Match the raw edges and iron until the glue evaporates

Flip up the cotton piece and iron along the "seam"

Fold the other edge 1/2" in and iron Add E-6000 Stitchless along the fold

Step 5: Iron the Tunnel

Fold down on to the first press seam and iron

This will create your tunnel and finish the curtain in the back

Repeat on the other curtain, hang and enjoy!

It's like a puzzle, but once you figure it out, you can do anything with this technique.
