Always measure your windows before buying a double curtain rod. This involves taking an accurate measurement of the window's width and length. Most probably you will get a kit along with the rods from the home improvement store itself.
Sewing Curtains - A DIY Project Working with curtains demands imagination and skills to work hand in hand in order to realize trend setting designs. Think out-of-the-box and create patterns that look unique, and your 'very own'. Binding applique designs with your swish curtains could ice-break your imagination streak, adding elegance to your space. When you have the principle idea of designing your curtains the applique way, you need to think no more, right? Wrong! Your work, actually starts from now on. Skimming through patterns, designs, fabrics and the type of stitch that would suit your curtains need your attention now. Try working with applique patterns, freshly out of your head, rather than with patterns, that could be borrowed from a home decor manual. However, for you to kick-start your curtain applique project, I deliver some patterns that may suit your taste, and your curtains.
Measurements: First of all, you need to determine the amount of fabric that you would need. This can be easily determined by measuring height and width of the gazebo. As far as the length of the curtains is concerned, you need to buy fabric that is 3 inches longer than the measured height of the gazebo. From these extra 3 inches, 1 inch will be needed for the bottom hem, and 2 inches will be required for the top pocket of the gazebo curtain panels. For the width, the fabric that you purchase should be one and a half times longer than the actual width, plus additional 1 inch on both sides for hemming. Method of Sewing: Always use straight and vertical seams throughout the sewing length of the fabric. First of all, sew a 2 inch deep curtain pocket throughout the length of the top side of the fabric. You can increase the length of the pocket, if you are using thick curtain rods. You also need to add 1 inch hem at the sides and bottom. Once you are done with sewing, all you need to do is attach the curtain to the rod on top of the inside frame of the gazebo. You can also create more decorative additions, like adding hooks, Velcro panels, and decorative panels that are easily available on the market.
