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
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!
Step 2: Choosing Your Design
First, you need to place your pillowcases in a T position, on a flat surface. the longest one should be over the shortest one. Lenght doesnt really matter since it depends on your window size. Center the longest one carefully in the middle of the shortest one.
sew (or glue gun) the fold. Do not sew the entire lenght of the pillowcase! stop after maybe 2 or three stiches.
repeat on the other side.
Step 4: Attach Together
Step 5: Flip Over
you will need to glue (sewing will show) the two pieces together, at the seam of the shortest one, from one side to the other, try not to miss any spot since it will curl or show once it's up. It should make a nice clean edge.
Step 6: Insert Pole
Step 7: Hang!
of course this window is not the one it is intended for. this is only for a better view purpose.
thanks every one! have fun creating funky curtains!
