Easy Peasy Curtains

Hi there!

It was a rather hectic time at work, working weekends and hence the disappearance.
But am back with these curtains I sewed today. I have been on the look out for something summery for my room. I have an unexplainable fondness for block prints and this print did it for me -

It was a double bed sheet that I promptly converted to curtains.
Step 1 - Measure and cut the sheets to the length and width of your windows
Step 2 - Seam the open end of the curtains. Since mine was a bed sheet, I only had to seam the end that I cut.

Step 3 - Check how thick the curtain rod is. Make a fold and ensure that the curtain rod can go into this fold. Here is the length of my fold.

Step 4: Done! Now just put the rod through the fold created in the previous step and hang your curtains.
Here is a close up with the rod through the curtain.

And a shot of them in full glory.. With the window open.

With the drapes shut..

The whole process took me just about half an hour and my room has not felt more summery!
