Easy Inexpensive Home Decorating
How cool are these curtains? And what’s even cooler is that I made them myself in about an hour and a half!
I saw this fabric and knew that I had to have it for my home office. I love the natural light in that room but in the summer it can get ridiculously hot without some sort of filter.
I took 2 yards of the print and 2 yards of a solid white fabric to make the curtains. I loosely followed these instructions but folded the top edge over 2 inches to make a tube for my curtain rod. I like that look better than the tabs used in the linked instructions. I also only made one curtain. I was looking for a stream lined look and I think this accomplishes that quite nicely.
The total cost was $35 in fabric and thread and I still have fabric and thread leftover to use on another project. If you are looking for green projects you could use organic fabric to make custom curtains although I just used 100% quilting weight cotton.
