I have seen dropcloth curtains on so many crafty blogs, that I just had to try it!
I needed new curtains in my kitchen to coordinate with the "new to me" table my sweet husband bought me. My new table is black and much more formal than my old oak table. I wanted curtains that would complement the table, but not cost too much.
I purchased two canvas drop clothes from Home Depot for about $10 each. They each measured 6'x9' and I was able to make a total of four panels, two for each window! To make each panel, I figured out the length that I needed and measured and cut accordingly. Then I measured the width and cut down the center. To hem the curtains, I simple pressed the hem with an iron and used fabri-tac to hold the hem in place. You of course can stitch the hem on a sewing machine too, but I was in a rush and didn't want to thread my machine!
I love the way that they turned out! They hang beautifully and also block quite a bit of light when they are closed!
