How to make curtains for living room step by step
For living room curtains:
First step: you must measure the window of your room.
From width to length, use the tape measure that will help you.
Second step: pass the measurements to a sheet of cardboard or cardboard, served as a mold.
Remember to leave approximately 5 cm on each side so that when making the edges the curtain does not look bad.
You must take the measurements very closely so that when cutting the fabric you do not make mistakes.
Well, it is necessary to take into account that the selvages should not be seen, but they should not be over-covered either.
I hope you understand my idea.
Third step: pass the measurements to the fabric and cut the fabric, I hope your window is square or rectangular.
If not, you will have to use a ruler to help you measure the shape of your window.
Step four: we are going to start giving the fabric a nice point.
Lay the fabric right on the side where you will hang the curtain.
Take the bottom side and measure 1.25 cm, and double, then iron.
The iron will help the fabric stay in place.
Be careful not to get too hot and damage the fabric.
After this, fold and iron again, now you only have to sew through the selvage where the double ends.
Now you have the first hem of your curtain, take one side again, either the left or the right.
Continuation of the steps
Repeat the process to make the hem, and when you are done simply repeat the procedures on the side that is left over.
Now we must work with the upper side, which is almost the same process.
The difference is that since this is the last one we are going to sew, there must be two openings on each side.
What we will do is repeat the doubles, but since the tube or rod will pass through there, leave 1.55 cm and double and sew.
If you are going to make two curtains, you just repeat the processes, be careful that it is the same size.
If you have already finished, then you already know how to make curtains for living room.
But as I told you before you can do other things like the border for example.
Decorate your curtain
Which you must measure the width of your window and if it is very long you must make two borders.
In this case with the same measure of each curtain that you have made.
The valances go to the middle or a quarter of the window.
You must make a curve that is like a straight vo and falls, before cutting you measure the pattern on the fabric and cut it double.
You are going to sew the curved part leaving 5 cm wide.
Before finishing, leave a few cm without sewing to flip, you flip the fabric like when you flip a cushion or pillowcase.
You repeat the seam 5cm later and in the straight part you put two holes for the tube.
You put it in a separate tube right next to the curtains and it will look great.
And that’s it, you know how to make curtains for a living room, it’s very easy, right.
Well I hope your curtains are nice.
