Anyone ever use fusable web/tape for making curtains? I don’t have a sewing machine and thought this would be an inexpensive option. Am really wondering if the tape would “melt” with the sun and then it wouldn’t stick anymore. Anyone happen to have experience with that? They would not be long ones, just short, kitchen window types if that makes a difference.

ButternutPoppy : I don’t know about the curtains but i did use the hemming tape to hem a very heavy dress and it stayed all night so I think it would work great. Plus depending how exactly you are ‘sewing’ the curtains the tape might not even come in direct sunlight.

I have used this for hemming curtains from Ikea before. I used those curtains for over a year before I moved and it held the whole time.

I’ve used it on heavy silk fabric when I was making curtains and it worked just fine. I used it at the bottom, though- not saying it would hold a rod at the top.
love that stuff.

I’ve done curtains and made a stuffed mole for my daughter’s project at school–with Stitch Witch!

I used fabric glue to attach blackout fabric to curtains and it worked great!

I’ve done this successfully! I bought some fabric that definitely had weight and was not see-through, and it has worked out great. I made them like 8 years ago and I have kept them as little cafe curtains in the kitchen.

I’ve used it… lasted about 4 years until I got new curtains! Definitely not a bad option!
