How to Make Curtains

Learning how to make curtains is one way you can get the curtains you want for your home. Some curtain styles are a bit more challenging to make than others, but with perseverance, most people can learn to make their own curtains. What a great way to create a unique window covering or treatment!

Do you need new curtains for a room in your home, but can't find exactly what you have in mind? Have you considered making them on your own? There are many different ways to make curtains for your home simply and easily. You can even find patterns that do not require sewing. There are also several benefits to learning how to make curtains for your home.

What are the benefits to learning how to make curtains?


  • Selection:
    You have a great deal of flexibility in the kind of fabric you choose, as well as its color and design. This can enable you to find the perfect way to cover your windows that will both enhance your window and the decorating style of your room.
  • Price:
    For the most part, by learning how to make curtains yourself, you can save quite a bit of money. This, of course, is dependent upon the fabric you choose to create the curtains, but it is likely that you will spend less on the material for your curtains than you would for curtains themselves. If you are on a strict budget, this can be a wonderful benefit to learning how to make curtains yourself.
  • Creativity:
    The options are as endless as your own imagination in designing your curtain panels. You can add many different embellishments that you may not even find on ready-made curtains, including unusual beading and trims. You can even paint on the curtain panels, if you so choose. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to create custom curtains for your room that will make your friends and family envious.

Where can you learn how to make curtains?
You will be amazed by the number of websites that can help you to learn how to make curtains for your home. In most cases, the patterns are free too, which is even more appealing. This will help you to find a pattern that meets your specific skill level, whether you are an experienced sewer or not. There are many different techniques you can use to make your curtains, including Velcro and fabric glue. This is great for those of us that are not very craftsy, because we can create custom curtains that look just as great as those sewed by a more experienced crafter.

Another great place to find patterns to make your own curtains is at your local fabric store. Most fabric stores have a large variety of patterns to help you find the curtain style that you want and need for your home. You can also buy your fabric and other embellishments in the store, so it is one-stop shopping. If you cannot find a pattern that meets your needs on the internet, then this is an option as well. Don't overlook a craft store for patterns, fabrics and trims either.


Learning how to make curtains is not difficult. No matter what your level of sewing and crafting experience is, you can find a curtain pattern that you will enable you to create your curtains entirely on your own. This can save you money and can help you to create the perfect curtains for your particular room and decorating style. Doesn't that sound good?
