No Sew Curtain Trim

Hi today I want to talk about what to do with left over 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 you 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.

This handsome guy is helping me keep the fabric from slipping off the table.

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 where to dark.

So they ended up in my sitting room

The pink flowers are from my Rhododendron plant on the on the side of my house.
