Step 2: choosing your design

 i needed a longer curtain for a door frame so i decided to try and match to different pillowcases and assemble them in a T shape. 

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.
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.
