I am so happy with how our nursery is looking and it has definitely become my favorite room in our house! I looked at a LOT of bedding and curtains online and at stores and couldn't find any that I loved, let alone any that I wanted to spend that much money on. I'm so happy I decided to make my own!
I wanted these curtains to be to the floor but am terrible at measuring fabric. It's more like I don't measure and just think a yard is bigger than it is. I got 5 yards so each panel is 2.5 yards and was just each for just the window length.
(And let me first apologize for my messy room and really gross ironing table.)
Lay out your panels and make sure they are the same size.
Fold it over again and iron down. Then sew right down the middle of your double fold.
Do this to the left, right and bottom of your panel. Take the top side and iron down once.
Fold over as big of a space as your curtain rod will be, plus a little extra. Mine was 2 inches.
Do the same to the other panel.
