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!
