I moved into an apartment and the light above the sink is a fluorescent light that has no cover and is horrible when standing in front of it. I bought fabric to make a curtain out of, but have no clue how to make a curtain or how to affix it to the cabinet. So what I need help with is, a pattern for a curtain and some advice on how to attach it.

This is the light.


This is the fabric.

You could by the stitch witchery (or whatever it is called) to do the hem you just sandwich it between the cloth (right sides together) and iron over it to make it stick.  I would probably use stick on velcro to attach it to the underside of the cupboard.  I hope that all makes sense.

I'm not sure if I could iron the fabric. I just realized that you can't tell by the picture but its very thin sheer fabric, however I sew, so I can do the hem, the Velcro idea is a wonderful one, I didn't really think a curtain rod would look good there, but Velcro would do spectacularly, thank you, thats probably what I'll do.

I am glad I was of some help.  I shouldn't have assumed, but that is what I get.  Recently I heard of a tip of sewing sheers by puting scotch tape where you are going to sew, then sewing over it, it will help with traction/slippage and then you can rip the tape off when the hem is sewn.

That fabric is going to look way cool with the light behind it

Ohh that is a very good tip about the tape I'll really have to try that. two dollar a yard fabric at Wal-Mart, hehe. I really want to make the curtain tonight but last night the sewing machine got hateful Sad I'll have to show it who's boss tonight.
