Even though this fabric was only $1/yd, I for SOME REASON got only 1.5 yards, so as a result, the rod casing for the right curtain is smaller than the one on the left, but I don't think it is noticeable enough to worry about. I'm going to go get some more of the fabric in a couple of days and I'll re-make the right curtain.

I LOVE the gingham print. Before I made these, the curtains that I had up in the kitchen came with the apartment, and they were cute, but they were not very 'springy'. I'm going to wash them and then put them back up when it gets cold again.


I realize the one without the flash, while it looks better, doesn't show the curtains very well. Here is one with the flash. However, it shows the casing issue too much for my tastes!  Cheesy

those are cute
and for a dollar and a half - you can't beat it

nothing says spring like new curtains

--and you could put some kind of trim, like a ribbon or something along the bottom of the short casing, and then match the placement on the left curtain, and you wouldn't need to re-do it -- just an idea

Well, the problem is that the curtains are the same length, but the casing itself (for the rod) is different widths. I might not even re-make them...I think I'm the only one who would casually notice. lol.

I think they look fab-you could go retro and put bobbles along the casing line if you did want to cover it. Gosh-I still have curtains up that I staple the hem on!!!

your curtains are cute, now I need to get mine done, I also got some dollar a yard fabric, but I got 24 and a half yards. My windows are long and I figure if I don't use it all on the windows, I can make something else.

You know, if you hadn't mentioned it, I don't think I even would have noticed the difference in casing size.  But then, it would probably bother some perfectionists I know.   I think they look great.  If only my kitchen had a window...
