DIY Tea Towel Curtains

Today I'd like to share with you a cute
and easy way to make curtains.

While visiting my sister-in-law over Christmas,
I saw these cute curtains she made for her kitchen.

Anyone who can sew a straight seem can make these curtains.

You'll need 1 or 2 tea towels, depending
on whether or not you want the same pattern on both panels.

Begin by cutting your tea towel in half

(or to the length you'd like for your curtain to be).

Turn the unfinished edge over 3 to 4 inches
(depending how deep of a ruffle you'd like of the top of your curtain).

Press with an iron.

Fold unfinished edge over 1/2 inch - stitching on the edge to form bottom of the rod pocket.

1 1/2" up from the stitched line, add another stitched line forming the rod pocket.

Run a curtain rod through the rod pocket,
and hang on your window!

What an easy project!!!
