No Sew Curtains Step 2

Now you need to measure for how long you will need the fabric to be.  I decided to make my fabric section 18″ long each.  So, I cut the fabric 2″ longer.

For the width I cut my fabric 2″ wider than the width of the drop cloth.

Now for the fun part!  I found this great stuff at my local craft store.  You can also get it HERE on Amazon!

Stitch Witchery Heavy Duty

I started with my fabric… I cut pieces of the tape the length of my fabric.  Then, I just used my iron to make the hem on both sides!

Yes guys… An iron!  Whoop!

Next I made my bottom hem the same way using a piece of tape cut the same width as the fabric.

    I tried this with Stitch Witchery and it didn’t hold. My LO grabbed at the curtain and now I have a huge gap in the middle of my curtain and am probably going to go back and sew it together now, which wasted all my initial time. Is this normal?

      Mehnaz I know this is a very old post. I have to agree about the witchery tape not a fan. It is so much easier to sew it on. I’ve seen so many DIY curtains made from drop cloths and a bunch of other things you could even paint a design of your own if you’d like. You can either do it just in one spot or the entire curtain. The possibilities for the drop cloth curtains are endless. Like I said I know this comment was in 2014 so I’m assuming most people that read this now know that you can make duvet covers, pillow covers, even the bleaching process. For example how to bleach for a duvet cover me, etc…..drop cloths before using it I believe for softer feel and all the other thing like making it look like like a grain sack pillow things like that. Like I said it’s endless. Some people even use it as wallpaper and that requires a process using starch.
