Cut a Slit on the top of your twin sheet curtains

  1. I love the new curtains! The pattern on the "fabric" is great. And from Miles expression…I'd say he agrees.

    Love the story that went along with!!! 🙂

  2. Those look fantastic and totally make the room. I love your step-by-step! Man, I remember those days, you have to do everything between! My hats off to you–great job and now I know twin sheets are a perfect curtain panel size. Thanks.

  3. Why haven't I thought of that? I don't need any curtains right now, but I will sure remember this for the future! I'm a naptime crafter, too, so I am right there with you. Beautiful summery curtains!

  4. These look beautiful. I want to find some nice sheets like these. The pattern is great. Doesn't look like sheets.


  5. Those are gorgeous! I love the way they turned out. I will have to go sheet shopping here soon.

  6. Love these! I have no curtains anywhere in my house, so I have to do this 🙂

  7. those look great-and can't beat the price. i love the pattern and the two toned color of your room!

  11. Love your new summer drapes. Great job with the "found pocket" in the hem – love it when what we see as laziness (NOT)turns into genius!

  12. Your curtains are so pretty and match the room so well! I did the same thing with a sheeta few months ago, now I just have to hem them up as I don't like the puddling look either! Just grazing the floor is just right for me. 🙂

  13. I think they look great and you have me inspired to look for some cute cheap sheets!

  14. WOW. Such an easy thing that I would NEVER think of. Looks like Im on the way to buying some new sheets…er…curtains!

  15. Love this!

    Totally sharing this on Facebook. Thank you so much for linking up to my mommy solution meme!

  16. Love the curtains! They're perfect. I appreciate that you keep it real about trying to do projects with little ones around–I have 3, ages 4, 2 and 2 months. I get it!

  17. Those are perfect! When I first saw your "before" picture, I thought the plain curtains looked great. After seeing the printed curtains, I think it really adds a lot of style and interest to your room! I love them and will be looking for sheets to convert into curtains for my living room!

  18. I know everyone else already said it but I'm going to say it too- who would have thought!! Those look soo great & I love the colors!! Thanks for the great post!

  20. I love these! I too made curtains from twin sheets, but I bought the $4 ones from Wally-World and did a subtle stripe tie dye on them with Rit dye. And I'm so lazy I just hung the curtain rod high enough to where I wouldn't have to hem them!

  21. This is such a labor of love! Thanks for sharing your creativity at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop 🙂

  22. they look great!! I am in some serious need for curtains in the office/sitting room- when did curtains get so expensive?
    I think i need to run on over to big lots… today!

  23. These turned out so beautiful!! I really love the print…they look great in the room. Awesome!!

  24. You are too cute! I love the mobile from the chandelier. 🙂 And I LOVE the curtains. I need some for my living room so I am bookmarking this. 🙂

    PS I have a $50 cash giveaway going on at my blog right now! Come by when you get a chance. 🙂

  25. Oh goodness, gracious, SAKES ALIVE! Those are the cutest darn curtains I ever did see… AND I have rolls upon rolls of hemming tape! SCORE! I couldn't sew a straight line to save my life (by hand OR machine) so this ought to work out great for me. 🙂 Amazing tutorial and your kids are PRECIOUS!

  26. I have come so close to doing this!!! and I was going to rip out that little seam at the top, but didn't know if I should or not, and then the sheets weren't on sale enough so I just haven't done it. I like the idea about hanging the rod high enough too so you don't have to hem the bottom! I can't wait to try these out when we move!!!

  27. I'm a new follower…I came across your blog today! I definitely need to start looking for some cute cheap sheets! I LOVE your curtains and how they came together so easy. I always have such a tough time finding curtains because they are so expensive (and I too am cheap!) and I'm afraid I won't like them once I get home.

  28. What a great idea! And so easy!! I love easy!! I am now your newest follower, via the creative bloggers' hop. I hope you will follow me, too! Blessings to you!

  29. What a FANTASTIC idea! I love it. We just bought a home in august with the granny curtains that are on a track and have the lace layer and then the pleated layer. They go all the way to the floor, and they are an ugly brown/tan. We’re having a baby in April, and I needed a cheap window idea for his room. I will have to look around for some sheets. Thanks for the idea! I love it.

  30. Now THOSE are my type of curtains, Anna! 🙂 Great job and great tutorial! Thanks for sharing your tips with us today! They look fabulous!!!!

  31. Many years ago, we bought a huge old house that had to have a lot of work done on it, so there was no money for curtains for the over-sized windows. There were three wide windows in the dining room, grouped together. I bought two inexpensive double-bed-sized flat sheets, used the wide top hem for the curtain rod pocket, and swagged them back to the sides with wide ribbon. No sewing, no cutting or heming, and they were reuseable as sheets later!

  32. I did something close to this! I found some cute shower curtains on sale. Then I just bought some rings to hang them from the curtain rod. they were perfect length too! super easy and super fast!

  33. Its so funny that I came across this today. I have been trying to find curtains that I like for my bedroom, really every room, but I dont want heavy “mass” produced curtains. So I got the idea to use sheets. Haven’t gotten around to it yet and this has inspired me to get my gears going. Yours turned out beautifully. I also love the idea of changing out curtains with seasons, great idea. Or if you just want a change. It would so much easier to find something to work into the decor that way but make a change to freshen it up. By the way I am a curtain puddle kinda girl so I love that the sheets would do that for me! I was worried they might be too short!

  34. LOVE THIS! Such an awesome idea to take something so discounted and make it beautiful as you did. I am a huge fan of your blog! I just came across it, and I am now your newest subscriber. Thanks for posting this!


  35. Just visiting from Heather’s blog – what a great idea. You’re right about the tape at the bottom – just the right amount of weight.

  36. I’m stopping by from Kelly’s Korner to check out your window treatments.
    I recently changed our master bedroom curtains from tab light blue curtains to chocolate brown blackout. What a positive difference they made.
    I still want to purchase something for our patio doors. Maybe I’ll get some ideas from my tour!
    Very smart of you. I have to remember these steps.

  37. They look wonderful! Thank you for this reminder. I used to do it when I was young and broke. Now I’m old and still broke…. bahahbbhaaa!

  38. Okay, you are officially my hero. I need curtains for my boys room badly, but it just hasn’t been in the budget. I can’t believe how easy this is?

  39. Such a great idea, and looks so easy to do … Would love to find sheets like what you show in your post. They are just what I need with my new comforter set. Any help with where to find them would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
