If you don’t sew then how can you make your own curtains? Don’t worry, you will find the answer through this article. There are some ways to know how to make curtains without sewing. You know if you have bare windows, the chances are you want something to cover them up, right? But you know curtains are the obvious choice in providing and blocking light. How if you need to sew the curtains? Since you know most curtains are made on a sewing machine, so you have to think about it more. Instead of purchasing the ready one, you can still make curtains without sewing. All you need is only to use the glue to hem the edges. Here are to do so.
First, you have to measure the height and width of the window. This is to determine the size of fabric you will need. You can then add six inches to both the width and height to allow for hemming. After that you can select a piece of fabric that fits the measurements. You know cotton will work best, but you can also use any non-gauzy fabric that can be ironed. Therefore, place the fabric face-down on the floor or on a work table.
Second, you can hem the side edges using glue. Fold 1 inch of material over and smooth it down and then bond the hems with your glue. After that you can use an iron to press the hems into crisp pleats. Don’t forget to hem the bottom of the curtains in the same way you previously did.
Third, you can hem the top of the curtains, but before doing that you have to fold over 4 inches of material instead of 1 and you don’t have to iron this edge too. You should know that the fabric should be a loop instead of a pleat. Let the glue to dry. After that, you can thread a curtain rod through the loop and at the top of the curtain you can hang it over your window. Those are some ways about how to make curtains without sewing.
