If you haven't used this miracle worker before then listen up carefully. I used this product on 2 sets of curtains and I am one very happy customer. Why should I learn how to sew now when I can just use an iron to make curtains?! I had read many blog posts about diy curtains, but didn't know it was this easy! My assistant (aka mom) and I made her office and living room curtains and saved about $160 doing so.
You'll need at least one pack per panel. At least that's how much we used. Keep in mind you are hemming the sides, and top/bottom.
We ironed the fabric first to get the wrinkles out.
Determine where your fold will be, then iron to make a crease. Measure, measure, measure! Some fabrics have a natural line where the print starts like ours did, so it was easy to get the hem even. After you have your crease, unfold it, and lay down the Stitch Witchery. Fold the fabric over, lay a damp cloth on top of the fabric and hold on top for 10 seconds with a steam iron. Hopefully you will have a nice assistant like I did to help hold the Stitch Witchery in place so you can work in sections. Do not move the iron back and forth. Repeat the same process until all sides are hemmed. Thank your assistant!
Here's what the bottom hem looked like when we finished.
Voila! We hung them on clips and they look fabo! They puddle just a tad more than we wanted, but we got a big fat rejection when we asked the boss to raise the rod. Now we just need to make a pillow from this Waverly fabric we ordered to brighten up the chair.
