Easy Chevron Curtains

Easy Chevron Curtains - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
Hi everyone!  It’s Melanie again from Find it, Make it, Love it.  Last week I got to share some quick envelope pillows I made for my girls bedroom.  Today I’m excited to share the curtains I made to go with them!

 I chose this fabulous Chevron fabric. It’s Riley Blake Designs Chevron Large Aqua found at the Ribbon Retreat of course!   I love it!!  

The first step of sewing up some curtains is to measure your window. : )  For my window size, I needed 4 yards – 2 yards per panel.  (I had my fabric in two 2 yard pieces.)

This fabric pattern runs horizontal with the selvage, so for the Chevron pattern to run horizontally as curtains, you’ll need to cut the fabric in half; then sew the two pieces together.

(This is the two cut pieces stacked so the Chevron will run horizontal.)

 Lay the pieces right sides together making sure the chevron pattern matches up just right.

There will be some overhang on each side because of how the pattern matches up. 
 Pin together.  Sew, and iron the seam down.

Once the two pieces are sewn, trim the overhang on each side.

Iron and hem the edges.

For the curtain rod pocket simply fold down the top 3-4 inches and sew, creating a pocket.

Repeat for the other panel.  Iron them nice and smooth, and they are ready to hang!
