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.
If you were to consider the many different types of curtains, you will be left feeling confused; there are a wide range of creatively developed curtains. According to your taste and personal style, the type of curtain you choose reflects your personality and reflects the feel of your home you wanted to create. Depending on the room you want to dress with curtains, the function and style of each considered curtain needs to be discussed and well thought out. From kitchen windows to bedroom windows, the function of these curtains must suit that particular room.
The top side of the curtain can have hooks or a continuous loop depending on the curtain rod you have. To make the loop, fold the top part of the curtain backwards and then sew it. Make sure the rod fits in well into the loop before stitching it. For a curtain with hooks, there are two options to choose from. You can have hooks made from the curtain cloth using buttons or you can opt for ready-made steel or plastic hooks that are readily available in the market.
