How to Make Curtains

The past few months have been very busy because we moved countries and we moved to a new home! You can just imagine how crazy it's been! The first project I had to make was curtains! Our windows and sliding doors required customized curtains. I figured that it shouldn't be as hard as quilting. Here's the tutorial:

Here's how I made it:

Step 1. Got help from my boys to measure the windows and sliding doors. Then I shopped for fabric on Lazada. I was happy to find out that there were many options on fabric. I got pink linen like polyester fabric (normally used for suits). It cost PhP100 per yard. 

Step 2. Measure and cut! Working with linen is a bit difficult though, so get help when needed. 

Step 3. Ironing the border will make it faster for you to sew. I folded 3 centimeters from all the edges and double folder it to keep the border clean.

Step 4. Sew all sides. 

Step 5. Fold 15 centimeters from the top. 

Step 6. Sew it.

Step 7. Mark 6 to 7 centimeters from the top. Pin it and check if the rod would fit. 

Step 8. Sew it. Annnddd you're done!
