Simple Window Curtains - No Sewing Required

How to make simple window curtains with or without sewing.


Measure the window


Cut the fabric

First cut one piece of fabric that is the size of your exact total measurement for both of the simple window curtains together. Before cutting be sure that the pattern of the simple window curtains is running in the right direction. After this is done, cut the first piece in half to make two pieces of fabric, one piece for each of the simple window curtains. You should be cutting in half, lengthwise. A good tip for cutting precisely is to fold the fabric exactly in half and use an iron to make a cutting line.

Side hems

There will be two side hems on each of the simple window curtains. Fold one side hem (edge) over toward the back (wrong) side of the curtain. The fold should be ½ inch. Iron the fold in place, then fold over ½ inch again and iron in place again. The double fold will keep the edges from fraying. Now use fabric glue, iron on hem tape, hand or machine stitch to make the fold permanent. Repeat this process for all the side hems. If glue was used on the simple window curtains, let it dry before proceeding.

Top and bottom hems

There will be a top and bottom hem on each of the simple window curtains. Repeat the side hems steps for each of the top and bottom hems on both curtains. If glue was used on the simple window curtains, let it dry before proceeding.

Curtain rod pocket

Fold each curtain top down 5 inches toward the wrong side of the fabric. Iron across the fold. Glue, tape or sew across the line, which should be 5 inches from the top of the simple window curtains. There should now be a 5 inch pocket to slide the curtain rod of the simple widow curtains into. If glue was used on the simple window curtains, let it dry before proceeding.

Trim threads/hang

Snip all sewing thread ends from the curtains They are now ready to hang. Remove one side of the curtain rod from the bracket and slide both simple window curtains on from one side. Be sure that the wrong side of the simple window curtains faces the outdoors. Once they are on the rod, replace the rod into the bracket holder. Now evenly spread the simple window curtains across the rod with the gap in the center.
