No Sew Curtains - Nursery!

Hello Everyone and Happy Thanksgiving Eve! :)  It already smells so good in my house, thanks to my awesome Mother In Law who is preparing some dishes tonight. :) I am here to bring you some more news about the nursery and where we are today!  Already moving forward with everything pretty quickly.  

So you remember on my last post when I talked about some curtain panels I wanted from Target.  Here they are here.  It was the exact color pink I wanted and I just loved the simplicity of them...Not to mention the price!  Hello $20!  Well they have been out of stock for so long, I decided to make my own.  I was done waiting.  I went to Hobby Lobby and found the perfect color pink AND it was only $2.99 a yard.  I needed 6 yards so that makes the price = $18.00.  Cheaper then Target (plus I was going to have to pay shipping!). I used stitch witchery, so no sewing and done so quick and looks awesome.  Also, I don't really like using the curtain ring clips that you can buy, plus that's just an added expense so I made my own little loop at the top to secure them on the curtain rod.  Once again, so simple and these babies look like the real deal :)  Here is how I did it - and you can do it too!!

First, measure out your fabric on the floor (seen below) and then cut the length you need.

Next, you'll lay your fabric on the ironing board and give it a good iron to get all the wrinkles out.  Pick an end of the fabric and fold the fabric over as much as you need to make a loop to hang up your curtains.  

Put the stitch witchery under the fold and iron.

Now you have a nice little loop across the top of your curtains to hang them up.

 I had to hem the bottoms of the curtains just a tad, but here is the final product!

 I love the way it looks against the gray and all the white!  Perfect!  You would never know these were hand made (if I do say so myself..) :) Also, we bought the mirror for above the dresser!  Garden Ridge Pottery, baby!  Good deals and awesome mirror.  Seen below - Check out the detail.

 Obviously haven't hung it up yet, but we will.  We also bought the glider and ottoman! :)  Free shipping.  Should be here in a week or so.  Can't wait to show you guys!  Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and enjoyed the new updates.  More to come.  I am making the crib skirt tonight so I will be back soon with that tutorial and new look to the crib.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!
