Bed Sheet Curtains
This project is an easy way to make curtains.
Total Time: 2 hours
- 1 bed top sheet
- matching thread
- scissors and pins
- sewing machine
- Measure window size. Cut sheet in half. My window measured 51" wide by 61" long, so the size of the curtains, gathered, would need to be 1 1/2 times the width of the window. The sheet I used, when cut in half, worked out to be 1 1/2 times the width, give or take a few inches.
- Iron under the sides of the sheet, folding twice, and hem by machine. Using a bed sheet, helps save the time of hemming the bottom and top of the sheet since they are already hemmed. Only the sides of the sheet need to be hemmed.
- Fold the top of the sheet down the number of inches necessary to allow room for the rod to be inserted. I did mine 4 1/2" and this allowed for the rod to be inserted as well as room at the top.
- Sew across the top of both sheet tops. Sew a second seam in the middle of the folded hem to hold the rod into place. Insert rod and hang curtain.
