One Hour Burlap Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

 These burlap curtains are fast and easy to make!
Okay, so it may have taken me a little more than an hour to make these, but that’s only because I had to chase a one year old around in the process. You can definitely make them in under an hour without any distractions. šŸ™‚ 
This burlap kitchen curtain tutorial is for a double window. I used a burlap table runner (that I had from Walker’s birthday party) that was about 18″ X 15′ from Hobby Lobby in the wedding section. I was going to use the Stitch Witchery no sew tape, until a lady at the store convinced me I could sew with burlap without any problems and she was right! Anyway, here is how to make the curtains.
1. Cut the burlap in half and pin your raw edge up about 1 inch.
(Burlap ravels terribly so be careful!)
2. Sew along the raw edge.
3. Fold your sewn edge up about one inch and pin.
4. Sew along the inner folded edge.
5. Now, fold your top edge down about 2 inches (or however much you need to fit your curtain rod) and pin.
6. Sew along the inner folded edge and your done!
7. Repeat process with second piece.
Let me know if you have any questions!

  4. I just made two sets of burlap curtains and valances for my kitchen windows even faster! 25 minutes....No sewing!! I used permanent fabric adhesive in Hobby Lobby. Beacon's Fabric Tac. I was amazed! There is a secret to cettin a straight cut on burlap....with no fraying. 1. Measure the length needed 2. Pull up the thread at that line in the middle of the fabric...grab it and pull it out!!!! 3. Cut along the line created by removing the thread! The result is a perfectly cutline that will not fray!! Enjoy your no-sew project!
