We used a coordinating fabric in a pale slate blue color. I cut a long 5.5 inch wide strip along the edge of the fabric.
Turn your strip inside-out and place the seam in the middle on top.
Fold the ends over toward the top with the seam and sew. Trim any extra fabric.
This is what the strip (or burrito, as my boyfriend likes to call it) will look like on the front side.
Once finished with all of the strips, you can begin to measure and pin along the top hem of your curtain.
Fold your tabs in half over the top hem and pin in position. I placed my tabs slightly below the hem to minimize any extra space between the bar and the curtain. You might want to place your tabs higher. The placement is up to you! Just pin evenly along the top hem of the curtain and sew each tab with a straight stitch. For heavier fabric (mine is fairly light), you may want to use a double straight stitch for more strength.
And here's the finished product! Sorry for the blur...I had to zoom and it wasn't pretty. :)
As you can see, because of where we needed to place the furniture, the bed was not centered with the window. I could NOT live with this. Luckily, my avid HGTV watching gave me a trick!
Hanging the curtains centered with the bed, and not the window, evens the wall up perfectly!
And here's the finished product! I love how these light curtains bring the room together, keep the street lamp light out at night, and keep the warmth in.
