 I love fabric. I think a good, classic fabric can go through the test of  time and still be cool to look at, to touch.

I also love curtains... so how do i go about getting new funky curtains with cool fabric for under 5$? with no sewing skills what-so-ever?? I use pillowcases!


Step 1: You will need

 no sewing skill. only thread and needle and even so, you could skip this and use a glue gun.

you will need a glue gun.

pillowcases, as many as you wish. I bought mine at a local thrift store, they were a dollar each. try to mix and match, or, in many cases, pillowcases will come as a pair, so you'll have a longer/larger curtain.

a pole. try to be creative! i use a standard metallic pole but i once used a golf putter, a hockey stick, a broom... even a tree branch could look cool!

thats it.

Just realised the blind looks very oriental. I might try to emphasise that by the type of fabric I choose and possibly adding a solid coloured edge.

Love the idea and the cost ie. cheap. Not keen on the hot glue because it only attaches in "blobs" or "smears". Another idea would be Spray-on-glue, which spreads nicely. Another might be Iron-on Interfacing, either bought in strips or cut into strips from a longer piece. It is sold by the Metre and quite cheap. Well done.
