Curtains that have a farmhouse look are not hard to make, and they can be crafted with such attention to detail and care that they stand out from other styles. Because of the style’s focus on simplicity, while still maintaining a high level of detail, it is an excellent choice for those who adore traditional design but prefer to keep the window view free of an excessive number of patterns and details.
First things first: calculate the length of your window before beginning to make your own farmhouse-style curtains. Measure from one side across to the other side to create a straightforward bay window (if you cannot find a straight line from one end of the window pane to the other). Then add another two inches on either side for the fabric to drape over. This number needs to be multiplied by two because you will need two panels for each window. If you want, you can add an additional four inches for draping at both the sides and the top, then multiply that number by two once more because you will need two panels. The width of your window will determine the total number of inches that you will require for your panelling.
Next, select a fabric that speaks to your heart. There are no restrictions on the fabrics used to make curtains for a farmhouse; however, if you want the curtains to have a more country-style appearance, I suggest using natural fibres like cotton or linen. If you want to add some colour, a soft pink or blue stripe is a good choice for adding a touch of country charm to your project.
After you have decided which fabric to use, cut it to the appropriate dimensions in terms of width and length (remember to add two inches for hems on each side). To make the header, cut a piece of fabric that is twice as wide as the panel you are working on and six inches longer than the length you want the finished project to be. Attach this header to the top edge of your panel using some stitches.
Cut a piece of fabric for the sides and bottom that is four inches wider than the finished length and eight inches longer than the length that you want it to be when it is finished (again, add two inches for hems).
At this point, you should collect your panels and arrange them, so they all face the same way. The top edge should be folded over once to create a hem measuring one inch and then folded over a second time to create hems measuring three inches on both sides of the top edge. You want to get this bottom hem as close together as you can without actually sewing through to the front of your curtain. Repeat the process with the remaining side and bottom edges, taking care not to sew these hems too tightly or too loosely; instead, they should have a little extra room because the curtain rod will cause them to draw up slightly.
Now comes the exciting part: decorating your curtains in a farmhouse style. You can accomplish this in one of two ways: first, you can sew some material along the bottom edge of your panels; second, for a more tailored appearance, you can attach a ribbon or braid. If you want to add some texture and interest to your project without overly complicated details, you can also stitch on rick rack, lace, or even pom-poms.
Or perhaps you would rather have a header that is embellished with rickrack, lace, or buttons—whichever aspect of the design produces the most attractive results! Again, there are no rules to follow in this area; all you need to do is have fun with it until you find something that satisfies your needs.
Cut four long strips of fabric that are either six inches or eight inches long for the finishing touch. The length of the strips should be determined by how much of the curtain you want to draw back when the curtain is open. This step is not required but adds a nice, finished touch. For an accent, you could do it in a colour that contrasts with your curtain. If you want an even more traditional look, you can achieve it by stapling these fabric strips to the four corners of your panel.
And there you have it: lovely curtains in a farmhouse style! You can make several panels at once and then get creative with how you decorate them; additionally, these drapes would make wonderful presents.
