To make your own farmhouse-style curtains, first, determine the length of your window. For a simple bay window, measure from one side all the way across it to the other side (if you cannot find a straight line from one end of the window pane to the other). Then add another two inches for draping on either side. Multiply this number by two as you will want two panels per window. If desired, add another four inches for draping at both sides and top, then multiply by two again as you will need two panels. The total number of inches you will need for your panels is the width of your window.
Next, choose a fabric that you love. Farmhouse curtains can be made from any kind of fabric, but I recommend choosing a natural fiber such as cotton or linen to give the curtains a rustic feel. If you want to add some color, try a pale pink or blue stripe for a touch of country charm.
Once you’ve chosen your fabric, cut it to the correct width and length (remember to add two inches for hems on each side). For the header, cut a piece of fabric that is twice the width of your panel and six inches longer than the desired finished length. Sew this header onto the top edge of your panel.
For the sides and bottom, cut a piece of fabric that is four inches wider than the finished length and eight inches longer than the desired final length (again, add two inches for hems).
Now gather your panels so that they are all facing in one direction. Fold over once at the top edge to create a one-inch hem, then fold over again so that you have a three-inch hem on both sides of the top edge. Sew this bottom hem as close as possible without sewing through to the front of your curtain. Repeat with other side and bottom edges being careful not to sew these hems too tight or too loose – they should be a little roomy as they will draw up some with the curtain rod.
Now comes the fun part – decorating your farmhouse-style curtains! There are two ways to do this: you can either sew on some material along the bottom edge of your panels or attach a ribbon or braid for a more tailored look. You can also stitch on rick rack, lace, or even pom-poms if you want to add some texture and interest without too many complicated details.
Or perhaps you would prefer an embellished header with rickrack, lace, buttons… whatever design element that looks best! Once again, there are no rules here – just have fun with it until you get something that makes you happy.
For the final touch, cut four long strips of fabric that are either six inches or eight inches long, depending on how much curtain you want to drawback when the curtain is open. This step is optional, but it adds a nice, finished touch and can be done in a color that contrasts with your curtain for an accent. Attach these strips of fabric at each corner of your panel for an even more classic look if desired.
And there you have it – beautiful farmhouse-style curtains! Make several panels at once and get creative decorating them – these curtains would make great gifts too!
