Steps To Make Curtains YouTube
There are different steps on how to make curtains YouTube.
Follow the steps below:
Step #1. Measuring
First off, you need to measure the window to determine the length and width of curtains you’ll make.
Also, measure the curtain’s length where you desire it to fall on the wall or window.
Furthermore, divide the curtain’s width in half.
Add such measurement to the curtain’s width; this will give the folds of your curtains when they’re closed.
Step #2. Choosing the fabric
There are many kinds of fabrics that you can choose from.
In this step, we’ll depend upon your discretion.
Choose something that will suit your taste and need.
Opt for heavier fabrics if you want a darker and cooler room; this kind is excellent for filtering lights out of your space.
If you want to let the warmth and natural light enter your room, lighter fabrics are the best option!
It would help if you also took note of this:
Add another length for the seams.
Step #3. Cutting the panels
Get your scissors or cutter.
Trim the fabric you’ve opted for according to your desired size.
In case you want several panels, add fabric with a width of more than 2 inches. Do so in every panel.
For the seams, you should add another 2 inches of length.
After which, the number of panels one shall divide into the total width.
Now, cut the fabric according to the resulting width.
Step #4. Folding and pinning
For the seam, make sure to allocate 1 inch on the side of the fabric.
It’s time to crease on the panel’s side.
Then, fold it to the wrong side. Put the pins about an inch apart down the crease.
Do the same process on every side of the panels, from top to bottom.
Step #5. Ironing the seams
It would help if you ironed the seams to create the fabric.
Make sure to turn the setting to the lowest.
Press the iron along every seam; do so for about five to 10 seconds.
In this way, you can make a crease that will aid you in placing the fabric tape.
Step #6. Removing the pins
To press the fabric tape between the panel and seam, it’s time for you to remove the pins.
Do this process carefully as possible.
Repeat the process in each seam, from top to bottom, side to side.
Step #7. Placing a damp towel on the seam and ironing
Look at the direction of the tape.
Then set your iron to the appropriate temperature.
Put a damp towel above the seam; iron it for about 10 seconds.
From the moment you’re done with most of the seams, the may find the fabric overlapping in the sides.
Don’t worry about this; it’s normal!
All you have to do is trim it so the fabric won’t get thicker on the panel’s sides.
Step #8. Clipping the rings
Now, it’s time to position the rings along the top seam.
To ensure that the panels appear identical, each panel should have the same number of rings.
Here’s a tip:
If you’ve opted for a patterned fabric, the pattern itself should face the correct direction. Ensure this process before you should set the rings in place.
If you want a purposeful and classier look, you should complement the ring clips to your curtain rod.
That means that you have colour options for your clips.
Step #9. Sliding the rings in the rod
Now, you can hang your curtains onto the rod.
Put the rings in place to the curtain rod.
Once you’ve positioned the rings correctly, the panels will appear to have an accordion-like shape.
Then, adjust your curtains according to your taste.
Well, you can iron them first before you should hang your curtains.
Other people in the UK steam their curtains first. It helps in releasing creases and wrinkles in the fabric.
In this process, however, you should make sure to avoid the seams.
Otherwise, the heat will result in splitting or curling; and you don’t want that to happen.
