- vintage sheet
- sewing machine (or thread and needle)
- measuring tape/ruler
- curtain rod
take measurements-- make sure you take note of the width of your curtain rod. If it's one-inch, I'd suggest sewing a two-inch hem to feed the rod through.
pick your fabric-- I chose a sheet that had a wide hem already sewn-- perfect to fit my curtain through
measure and cut-- making sure to include one inch at the bottom and sides for the hem, as well as your two inches at the top for the rod (if not already including in the sheet.)
fold over one-inch around the remaining edges of the sheet, ironing and pinning as you go. If your sheet does not have a hem at the top, fold over a two-inch piece of fabric. This is where you will feed the curtain rod through.
sew the hem down, making sure to leave openings at the edge of the top hem so you can fit the curtain rod in.
hang your curtain! I used a really thin rod -- only $2.99 at my local hardware store!
I love the final product and can't wait to make more things with my stack of vintage sheets. :)
