- Measure the area that you will be covering and cut the piece of fabric a little bigger than that, in order to have it crunch up a little bit and to be able to fold over the top and bottom. I decided to do two pieces of fabric, if you just want one you can do that instead.
- Iron the fabric and fold over the edges you will sew. The top edge will hold the rod, so make sure you measure it correctly in order to be able to slip the rod through. The bottom edge is sewn in just to make it look neater. Pin the edges and sew a straight stitch along the top and bottom.
- Slip the rod in the fabric and put it between the sides of the shelves. Now you have a cute little curtain to hide whatever you don't want to be seen!
I decided to store my fabric in a bookshelf instead of on my shelf in baskets.. I can't believe I didn't realize it sooner. It takes up so much space to have the baskets, wasted space if you ask me. I needed a way to cover the open bookshelf because as you can see it doesn't look very pleasing to the eye. Plus my mom hairsprays her hair in the same room and I need to protect my fabric. I decided to make a little curtain with some fabric I bought for bows that were being featured and didn't sell. Here's a little tutorial on how to make your own curtain.
