Since I do sew a lot, I thought it would be cool to try some photography to show off some of my wares. I don't have a lot of money to buy professional photography backdrop etc. So what I did was I piece together some velcro to some home decor hooks (the adhesives on the hooks can be a bit damaging to the walls) and measured both about 8 ft high on the wall. I then took two bathroom curtains and taped them end to end, giving me about 70"W x 140"L (5'10"W x 11'8"L) to work with. Using some duct tape, create a sleeve at one end to slide a curtain rod. Hang on wall hooks and there ya go...instant photo backdrop.

Update: poster shout4joy made a wonderful suggestion of using Command hooks in place of velcro. That totally slipped my mind and would be a great substitute. Thank you.

Great tutorial!!  Thanks for sharing!

I often buy fabric right off the bolt to use as backdrops.  Such a great resource.

could you use Command hooks instead of the Velcro ones? They shouldn't leave marks on the wall when you pull them down...
