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.
- 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.
- Adhesive spray
- Fabric paint to match buttons
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.
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.
