Easy yet elegant curtains
Approximate Time: 3 hours
The curtains I made used a 3 inch rod. I hemmed the material to allow for 3 1/2 inches. I allowed enough fabric to make a slight ruffle at the top. Too much ruffle will cause the curtains to bunch up and they will not hang properly. Make them a length that you will feel comfortable with.
For the sides, I used a contrasting color. I used fabric that would fit the length of the window after hemming. I hemmed all sides of this fabric then used safety pins to hang them from the top corners of the top curtain and used the same trim that I attached to the tie at the top to gather the top ends.
These are very easy to make and my parents "whom I made them for" love them!

These are very nice. Thanks for sharing.
Absolutely beautiful. I am in awe.
These look great. Thanks for the wonderful idea too. :-)
I lived in an apartment. So I really couldn't do window treatments but I made Miracles happen with 2 medium sized nails! It was a large picture window. But I used a sheet like fabric. It was floral so it really had a dramatic touch! And I used pretty much the same shape window treatment.
