If you are one of the lucky few to have a bay window at your home, then you must be no doubt wondering how to use a window treatment to enhance its beauty. Drapes and curtains are one of the best window treatments for bay windows as it gives it a soft look and you can also enjoy the view outside. Whether it is a sheer drape or luxurious silk drape, for mounting it you need a curtain rod. There are different styles of bay window curtain rods to suit the design and structure of your bay windows most of which consists of one single wide window, flanked by two narrower windows, which are set at an angle of 120-130 degree to each other. To mount curtains on such windows, an angled bay window traverse rod is ideal. But you need to customize them to fit your bay window measurements. This obviously is not a cheap option. So, the next best thing would be to make your own bay window curtain rods.
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.
6. Measurements for Eyelets At the top of the fabric, measure about 3 inches from the side and mark with a pin. Then mark 4-6 inches from the first pin and place another pin, continue along the entire width of the curtain. At the end, you should still have some fabric left. The distance between two eyelets can be decided depending on the look you want. This can be done using a template that comes with the eyelet set.
The fabrics were not enough for a long panel. So I lined them together and sewed them then ironed them, and I got a long stripe.
