Do you want to have custom-made curtains for your home, but don’t know how to go about it? Follow these simple steps and you will be on your way. Before we get started with the first step, though, I need to mention that this article assumes that you have basic sewing skills. If not then please consult a professional or take an online class before attempting any of these projects. Just take precise Measurements and you will be all right!

A lot of people think that making curtains at home would require skills beyond their own but in reality all they need are some simple instructions and an afternoon’s worth of time. This tutorial will teach anyone with some basic sewing knowledge how easy it can be to make their own curtains tailored specifically for their windows using mostly materials found near them or in their own home.


Decide what type of fabric you would like to use for the curtains. You can either choose from one of your favorite designs or make up your own pattern by combining different fabrics together. The most important thing is making sure they are durable enough for frequent use and cleaning while still being aesthetically pleasing.
