The buttonhooks require some extra fabric to make the straps. You will need a number of straps cut into equal sizes depending on the length of the curtain. The buttons should then be sewed on one end of each strap. Finally make buttonholes at the top edge of the curtain with regard to the size of the straps. One of the advantages of this method is that by adjusting the position of the buttonholes you can adjust the height of the curtain from the ground.
Purchasing ready-made curtains can lead to compromise on quality and design. You are also provided with a limited range to choose from and therefore it is very hard to find curtains that suit your needs. You may find a curtain with your preferred fabric but the pattern or design is not satisfactory. You can overcome these hurdles by making your own curtains. Sewing your own curtains does not necessarily need professional knowledge. Below are some steps you can follow to make your own curtains-
Some curtains require some lining at the back to make them thick. In this case, cut the lining material of the same length as the curtain fabric. Pin the two fabrics with their plain sides facing each other. Sew the two materials together at the border with a sewing machine. Fold the edges at least half an inch inwards along three sides and then hem sew it using the sewing machine. Only one of the shorter sides should be left unstitched. However if you want to add drapery weights on the bottom side of the curtain you should leave it unstitched too.
Curtain tracks and curtain poles can be hand operated so that many different curtains can operate on one window. This allows curtains of different widths and drops to stack at different locations on the window. In addition they can also be operated as a blind with a cord to avoid handling the curtains or electrically for the extra security and a touch of luxury.
Window coverings come in so many different varieties today that it may be hard to decide on what you want. The decision may come down to personal taste but you can help yourself by doing some research on different varieties of window coverings. One popular type of window covering is the roman shade which is also known as country curtains. They are flat shades with dowels slotted horizontally up the back so they can be pulled up into soft horizontal folds. Roman shades give a clean modern look to your window space.
