Easy, Breezy Curtains

There really is no lesson with these. I was just tired of the sun heating up my kitchen in the morning and made these and thought I would share.

I so cheated at these curtains! At least the bottom part. The top I did years ago. No sew! Well, I ended up sewing mine, but it wasn’t my intent. I just didn’t have what I needed to make the no sew. And cheap!!!! Less then $2 a curtain! Here’s how to do it.

Materials:

  • Flour clothe  (I found mine in the kitchen section of Fred’s. $5 for a pack of 5!)  Or you can use dish towels in your kitchens theme.
  • Ribbon
  • Buttons
  • Adhesive spray
  • Fabric paint to match buttons
  • Hooks

1)I had to iron my clothes first.

2)Then I measured the ribbon by pulling it as long as the curtain. Follow direction on the fabric adhesive to apply ribbon.

3)Decide where you want to place buttons, then add a little fabric paint to the back of button and press gently onto ribbon. Let dry.

This part you will have to sew just a little, so you will need a needle and tread. I cut ribbon to the length I wanted the loop. Make a loop with the ribbon and place button on top; sew in place.

Decide where you need to place the hooks on your windows, screw in and hang your curtains. These 3 took me less then 1 1/2 hours to make, but I did it differently.

I measured out the ribbon,then decided where I wanted the buttons. I just “eyeballed” this. Then I sewed the buttons on. I didn’t worry about sewing the ribbon in place first. I did it this way because my adhesive spray decided to clog up on me and I didn’t have the paint I thought I had. When you live 20 minutes from the nearest Wal-Mart it is just as fast to sew it in place then to make the trip to get what you need.

Hope you enjoy making these as much as I did.
