To make the curtain a foot tall I cut my fabric 17" in height to account for the hems.
I iron the hems about a half inch fold and sew those on all 4 sides. I then iron the top and bottom hems on a 2" fold and sew those.
I made this tonight in about 1 hour. Very fast and easy project for beginner sewing! I've already bought my St. Patrick's Day fabric for next month!! I'm excited for that one too!!
It's always nice to be able to change the scenery and have new things to appreciate in your home, especially when it is things you have made!
