DIY Sheet Curtains!


Curtains....on the cheap.

One twin flat sheet needed....that. is. all. folks.

I lucked up and found just the color I was looking for.

Shabby Chic from Target.

Added bonus....it had a Ruffle~


Have you any idea how hard it is to iron ruffles....grrr

Just kiddin'

After I ironed (kinda)
 I pinned it to get an idea where I wanted it to hang.


I sewed a small pocket for the curtain rod to slip into.

I then cut the sheet/curtain in half ...right down the middle.

From there I gave each side a nice new hem..

or would that be seam?

I told ya'll I sew like a 3rd grader...ha!


Whatever you call it..

Maddy likes them!


and you know what?


I think I like them too :)

While I was up on the ladder I peeked out of her window.

This is what I saw.

Kid'ville.


And this is what I heard...

Our fountain.

I think I may just move in her room...ha!


Ok...it was nice chattin' but this girl has a room to finish ;)

See you soon!

  7. I've done this too! It saved me a ton. And it was even better that you only had to sew a pocket for the rod. Love it!

  8. I used a plain white twin sheet for my bedroom curtains too. A whole $7.00 from Wal-Mart. Wish they had the little ruffle though.

  11. What a wonderful momma you are to change her room after putting so many wonderful and personal touches in the "before." I'm sure that the new "after" room will be even more wonderful than the last. It's already looking great!
    P.S.I'm still in love with the faux chandy in her old room! I wish I were as talented as you are to be able to copy a great design by simply looking at it.
