How to Make Blackout Curtains

Custom curtains are very expensive. I researched on what kind of fabric I should use to make blackout curtains since it could get scorching hot during the summer. I bought Philipps curtain fabric at PhP99 per yard and lace embroider fabric at PhP95 per yard. It just cost me PhP2,500 to make a set for our living room since labor is free. 

Here's how I made it:

Step 1: Cut fabric based on the measurements. Make sure to add 16 centimeters to the length of your window.

Step 2: Fold in 3 centimeters across all sides. Iron, then sew.

Step 3: Fold in 10 centimeters from the top. Iron then sew.

*You can optionally add a "frill on top" if you wish, just add 21 centimeters to the length.
