Hey guys!

I have a fun and super easy way to get expensive looking curtains and panels without having to drag out your sewing machine.  I just made these for my little girl’s room and I LOVE them!

No Sew Curtains

First, let’s talk fabric!

I found the most amazing online fabric store!  Not only are their prices the best, they have an awesome selection!  I am an immediate gratification kind of gal, so when the shipping was fast, I was sold!  It’s called OnlineFabricStore.net !

Totally LOVE this store!  Remember the cute magnet board I made for her room??

Yup!  I got that cute chevron fabric from OnlineFabricStore.net as well!  You can find it HERE!

I found this great fabric for her window panels!

Curtains No Sew

These panels are a great way to get custom drapes that only require about a yard of fabric!  That allows you to splurge a bit more on the price of fabric since you only need 1 yard instead of 6… Woohoo!

I started with this drop cloth from Lowe’s!

I always start by cutting this drop cloth in half.  That gives you two panels, both with 3 already finished sides… Woohoo!

  1. Thanks for getting the pop ups removed. I have made curtains just like this for my dining room. I had purchased pre-made drapes but they needed another 30 ” to reach the floor. I purchased coordinating fabric and used this same method to attach my fabric. So very easy.That was 4 years ago and I still love them. They are holding up perfectly. So if anyone is concerned about the durability, fear not. Stitch-Wtichery works great! Thanks for sharing the tutorial. Your daughter’s curtains are precious.

  2. I am making drapes from these for my mom. She is loving the ones I completed already. Thanks for the great suggestions and savings.

  3. I’m curious why you chose a drop cloth for curtains….ingenious idea! I don’t have a sewing machine but figure I could manage to do that for a change of scenery in my living room Thanks for the great tip!

    1. Hey Laurie! I have actually done several window treatments using drop cloth! It is perfect because the color from the outside of the house is neutral leaving you no reason to line them… Easy! Here is another tutorial I did on them…


  4. This is pretty much awesome! I DO NOT sew and I have been needing some drapes in a few rooms so you have just solved my problems. I think I’ll try out this curtain trick this weekend! Thanks!

  5. All the pop ups and ads make your site very slow to load. I understand wanting to make money, but the slowness and pop ups are incredibly annoying and have me clicking on your site less and less.

    1. Thanks for the heads up Jennifer! We are getting that one pop up removed! We appreciate you 🙂 Have a happy Friday!

      1. Awesome! Now I love it even more… I have awful curtains in my spare bedroom… this motivates me to do something cool… thanks! 🙂

          1. I will – hoping that I win the $100 for free fabric… then it would make the curtains even more amahhhzzzing… lol Thanks for the idea.
