No Sew Tutorial
Here's the BEFORE
When we moved in, the bathroom was an eye sore! I wanted to do a quick makeover on a budget so I got creative to tackle a few projects. This no sew curtain was a favorite & so easy!
The most important part is measuring your window accurately. Measure the width for the size tension rod you will need (mine was 24"). You'll need to measure the width and height as well to determine the amount of fabric you will need.
Select Your Fabric
You can take these measurements to your local fabric store and they can cut the fabric to size for you. Add a couple inches to each measurement since you will folding the fabric over. Tip: If you aren't sure what color or pattern to choose, try to find a simple pattern that incorporates the paint color on the walls in the room. That way, everything will flow nicely!
Apply the Bonding Tape
Once you have your fabric, grab your iron and the bonding tape ( Stitch Witchery) - aka the magic glue when you don’t sew! You'll fold over each side about an inch with the bonding tape between the layers (more for the top depending on the thickness of your rod).
I always start with the two sides first, then I do the bottom. Saving the top (where the rod will slide in) for last. Iron each section for a minimum of 30 seconds. TIP: You can use the steam setting which will help bond the tape to the fabric.
Install to the window
Slide the rod through the top of the fabric and install the tension rod to the window. For more DIY and design ideas, follow my blog ShiningOnDesign.com And as always, please reach out with any questions! ~ Samantha
