Elevate your hand must you’re disturbed of stitching! (Am I the most traditional one raising my hand right here?)
It’s now not that I don’t non-public to learn. I discontinue. My mother has tried to educate me a few events on her actually chilly vintage Singer machine. I even took home economics in center college and learned ample to net a pair of actually pathetic taking a think shorts. And then I forgot how all over the attach all all over again.
Plus, must you haven’t caught on already, I actually non-public the patience of a two one year-venerable, which is on the total a unhealthy combination in our home since we already non-public a sassy one. Nonetheless I actually actually desired to net a canopy and curtains for our toddler’s new room, so darn it, I was as soon as going to figure it out one way or the opposite! And, thus, this no-sew model was as soon as born.
Okay, I’m now not the first blogger to reach up with a no-sew curtain tutorial (so I wager I’m now not the most traditional one disturbed of a needle and thread, huh?). Nonetheless I’ve read a few ones through the years as I’ve tried to beat my lack of crafting talents on this case, and right here’s what I got right here up with that labored for me.
I’m now not definite if this kind would be very most realistic for materials that you take grasp of to non-public to position by procedure of the washing machine, however it’s awesome for straightforward curtains and pillow covers.
For Olivia’s mattress room, I selected Premier Prints French Establish material in Bella Purple and Storm Grey (affiliate).
Since I was as soon as making a curtain canopy, I made the panels on the skinny side. For her precise window, I’m the usage of the fat width of the cloth, which is 56″. The traditional rule is curtain panels needs to be 1.5 to 2.5 events the width of the window you’re framing.
After slicing the width of the cloth in half, I decrease the panels to the scale I wanted, which ended up being about 6 inches longer than the finish of the ceiling to make some puddling on the bottom.
I pinned the raw edges on the perimeters and bottom of the panels.
To make an improbable, crisp fold, I ironed the pinned edges. This step made it a lot more uncomplicated for creating the seam too.
Warning: If you happen to’re a talented seamstress or a lucky suave one who is gorgeous first rate with a stitching machine, think away now!
My hot glue gun and I are very most realistic chums. We’re tight. Flo the glue gun understands me. And we braid every other’s hair and gush over Cosmo and stare chick flicks together. Don’t despise.
So actually I needed to bring her in on the action of my needle and thread diss occasion. All it took was as soon as making employ of a line of hot glue below the fold and ending the “seam” whereas taking out one pin at a time. I pressed the brink to net it flat as I went.
That you just would be in a position to furthermore discontinue the finish edge and add ring clips must you take grasp of to non-public, however I selected to net a rod pocket for the cover. I outdated a 4 gallop seam allowance, folded it over, and pinned in divulge.
Then, a strip of hot glue executed the job.
It’s now not very most realistic by any seamstress’s standards, however fascinated in regards to the total canopy imprint me about $20 (thanks to a great buy I had), I’m pleased!
I’m beautiful definite I hung my curtain rod a smidge too a long way to the left, however I’ll be taking it all of the procedure in which down to coloration anyway, so I’ll fix it then. I had a baby making an strive to climb up the ladder with me, so the fact that it’s up is miraculous.
Oh, and discontinue you see it now? I outdated her canopy to physique the sweets desk for Olivia’s ballerina birthday occasion closing weekend.
I love that I was as soon as ready to incorporate my venerable pointe sneakers as tie backs. When we acquire the various ballet-impressed decor in right here, this would possibly perchance well well presumably be even better.
I wouldn’t be a truly most realistic friend if I didn’t part my massive itsy-bitsy trick. If you happen to rent and would possibly well well furthermore’t drill holes for your wall or you’re a teacher who can’t rupture your lecture room partitions like I as soon as was as soon as, Repeat hooks are da bomb!
I had a lecture room that various from hot to icy and dry to humid all college one year, and these unhealthy boys with heavy curtains striking on them never fell as soon as. Since I had the hooks leftover, I determined to make employ of all of them all over again.
They’re holding up my pointe shoe tie backs too.
Incidentally, you would possibly well well well presumably gaze the inspiration board for Olivia’s mattress room plans alongside with her dresser makeover and mattress refinishing from outdated posts to seek for the procedure in which a long way we’ve reach.
This actually marks the closing of the purple stuff (attributable to I’m making an strive now not to overdo it), and I’ll be throwing in more grey and metallics subsequent. We composed non-public a pleasurable distance to head, however the vision is starting to reach together!
What discontinue you watched to this point? I love reading y’all’s suggestions!
