No Sew Curtain Trim

June 4, 2013

Hi, today I want to talk about what to do with leftover fabric.  I had a small amount of fabric left from the chair redo in the previous post.  I thought the trim would look nice on the dining room curtains.

This project is great for all who do not sew!  This was a quick and easy project and gives your cheap curtains a custom designer look.

Tools you'll need:

Fabric Glue

Fabric Shears 


Since I was using stripes it was super easy to cut a straight line.  I cut two strips about 4" wide and the length of the curtain.  Most standard size curtains are 84" long.   I cut 2" more so I could overlap the fabric around the back of the curtain.  I wanted my trim to be extra wide but you could cut any width you want.

I laid one strip on the table and made a crease with my finger along the edge of the fabric.




 I used two of these tubes 



Next, I glued all the sides 


 

Then I glued the trim on the curtain.

My original plan was to hang the curtains back in my dining room.  I thought they would look nice with the chairs but when I hung them back up they were too dark.

So they ended up in my sitting room
