20 Uber Easy No-Sew DIY Curtains

Not all of us are into sewing. Well, I can sew a little like fixing buttons or other stuffs that we learned in school. But I can also sew other stuffs that don’t need complicated patterns like a pillowcase or a uhmm…curtain? It is actually easy to sew a curtain but it would really be nice to make one even without sewing it. As a matter of fact, I prefer a no-sew curtain because it is very easy to make and I am saved from the stress of reprimanding a little girl who joins my feet on the sewing machine’s pedal and who thinks a thread is a jumping rope.

Whether you are a mom or not, you will no doubt feel relieved that you don’t have to sew a curtain. But why do we have to make it if we can get a ready-made curtain from the market? This is for people who can’t find that perfect curtain and for those who want to add some personal touch to their own interiors. This isn’t for the i-don’t-care-as-long-as-it-is-there kind of people. Hey’all DIYers, here is a list of easy DIY no-sew curtains that you can try on. You might even discover a different twist to the ones below.
