I want to learn to sew... I know kind of the basics of how to operate the machine but Im lost on reading patterns...

I was wondering can anybody show me a good link on how to make super easy curtains??  I want to make curtains for my room.

I do personal swaps if anybody is interested please PM me!

Here are  a couple of links:




A curtain is basically a piece of fabric hemmed on all sides (I like making the bottom hem bigger than the others).
Then you can slide a rod through the top (if you've made the top hem wide enough)  to hang it.
Another way is to attach curtain tape at the top.You buy that at any fabric store and once it has been sewn on, you pull the threads to gather the curtain into nice pleats. Then you hang it using curtain hooks. Very pretty and professional Smiley
