- Flat sheet
I never usually use flat sheets since I have a duvet cover, to this is great for a bedroom since the curtain will match the fitted sheet used on your bed!
1. Fold your flat sheet based on the shape of your window. I folded mine the "long" way. Measure out the length of your window and how long you want your curtain to fall. You can use measuring tape, but I just held up the curtains to see how it would look (ask a friend for help!). You could also use a safety pins to mark the point where you'll fold the sheet again so that it'll fall at the right length. I had mine fall a little less than a foot from the bottom of the window. How plain/ugly are these windows?
2. Next use your thumbtacks and thumbtack them to the top of the frame of your window. I realize you probably don't want to make too many homes especially if you're a tenant like me but thumbtack holes are really small! I used three thumbtacks, with one additional one in the middle. You could double up on each spot for extra strength but use your best judgement!
3. Now tie a ribbon around the middle (middle to bottom) of your curtain. My room is pretty much black, white and purple so I went with a theme-matching ribbon pattern!
Awesome! Here's how my sheet/curtain turned out!
What I've learned:
- Iron your sheet first.
- Safety pins can also be used to tuck in the top sides of your sheet that's folded behind your curtain.
- Once you push that thumbtack into the wall, don't take it out! It'll be loose and probably won't
You can always change up the color of your curtains to make the fitted sheet you use on your bed. The best thing about this is that you can reuse your flat sheet if you ever need it! I hope you guys enjoyed this post and try it out for yourself!
