I needed a somewhat fashionable curtain for our bedroom, and wasn’t having an easy time of explaining what I wanted to a seamstress. After trying a few times to find an affordable option in the stores, I gave up and created my own bohemian version (i.e. I didn’t pull out the machine and sew the seams).
Here’s the finished version:
Take your fabric and cut into strips that are about a foot longer in length than they need to be, and in whatever width you desire. I chose varying widths. Thicker widths create more coverage and larger knots, thinner widths create the opposite.
Gather each strip and create a loop at the top with the extra 12 inches of fabric.
Put the loop underneath your curtain rod with the fabric facing the opposite direction it will eventually fall. Pull the fabric over the top of the curtain rod and through the loop. If you have fabric that is patterned on one side, make sure the pattern shows up correctly.
What the knots look like finished:
Voila! A new curtain for minimal cost and time.
