Are you referring to a method using  tape that you iron to make a hem? If you follow directions, it is very sturdy-can even go through the wash.

Another even easier method is to use sheets- they are already hemmed. Attach ring clps at the top and slide them over the rod. If you get sick of them or decide to have draperies at a later date, you still have the sheets.

Sheet…that’s cheap. ($4 Ready-Made Curtains)

The easiest method I’ve used is to buy sheets (NOT fitted) and take the end where the hem is and cut a slit on either side of the sheet.

Then all you do is slide the curtain pole through it! Super easy, cheap and you can re use them.

This picture shows the hem the best and I’ve edited in paint to show where you cut.

Great idea on the sheets! I’ve never used hemming tape before, but I use a lot of Fabric Glue on projects. It works great and is VERY sturdy. If you use too much it might look a little goofy, but curtains are light weight so it shouldn’t be an issue.

@kayberry:  I just did the same thing with a pillowcase for my bathroom window. Looks great and it was the perfect size.

@julies1949:  I had no idea that this was actually a trend. I did this with sheets about nine years ago, and I love the result!

by the way guys, I found a picture that shows what I’m talking about (I think), since I don’t have any pictures of when I did it.

But it’s so easy and you don’t need tape/glue/sewing.
