Picture of Velcro Curtains for Your Camper Van
In this instructable we will make some curtains for a camper van.

I wanted to use curtains that didnt require a rail system to support the top and bottom as this can interfere with the space inside the van. I therefore opted for some simple  curtains that are velcro-ed in place when required.


Step 1: Buy the Materials

Picture of Buy the Materials
You will need:

A van
at least 5m of velro with stick hooks and sew loops.  (~$50 in australia!)
Sewable material of your choice (we used a low weight poly cotton blend)
A sewing machine (ours was found on the side of the road).
about 2 hours per curtain (I also learnt to sew in this time)
gf
fabric crayons
tape measure
fabric scissors
pins

Do you get much air through the fabrica? ie screens? Thanks for the wonderful post.

Sorry Margret,

Yes there is plenty of air. The weeve is not super tight and there are gaps around the window frames. That said, I would recommend a vent from down low to allow cool air in.

This is a great idea! They look really nice, too. :)

Thanks Jessy. I wanted to use screw in button studs to give a cabin cruiser look but I was worried about damaging the plastic sills for resale.
