Step 1: Fabric and Measurements.
Go to the fabric store and pick a fabric you like. These curtains will be cut so the "grain" or warp is running top to bottom, so make sure the fabric bolt is at least as wide as each curtain you want to make. Buy enough yardage to accommodate all your curtains. I bought 4 yards of 48in wide fabric to cover 2 50in x 30 in windows and it worked out well.
Step 2: Hem 3 Sides of Each Curtain.
Step 3: Hem the Top of Each Curtain.
Same as the side hems, fold over your desired width on the raw edge, then fold again, pin, and stitch. Your seam can run further in from the edge here as you have more room to play with.
If you want to stop here, you can. Adjust the hem to be large enough to accommodate a rod, or the cable solution seen in my other instructable. In retrospect the eyelet idea on the next page can look cool but is not super functional.
Step 4: Set Eyelets in Top Hem.
Last step to these curtains is to set eyelets in the top hem to use for hanging. Once you set these you can either run a wire or string through and hang them (instructable coming soon!!) or use rings and a curtain rod, or figure out something cool and new.
I used 5 per curtain, this made them fairly secure but also left a lot to droop in between, you can use as many, or as few of any size as you want.
If you don't know how to set an eyelet, check my instructable on how to do it here:
Once this is done, you are ready to hang. Just clip any loose threads, iron them if you're into that sort of thing and go. Ill post more pics once I hang these and put up the cabel curtain rod instructable.
Oh, and just so we're clear, I did it at Techshop.
