While searching for a new home, we lived in an apartment for a few months. This was a VERY old apartment with windows everywhere, and nothing covering them. So I bought LOTS of floor-length curtains that I knew I could use once we found a house. My problem was, when it was time to hang them, they were all too short! My new home doesn't have the highest ceilings, but I need them to APPEAR as high as possible. The trick to this is hanging your curtains right below the ceiling. It really works! Unless your curtains are too short... So the solution: add fabric at the bottom of the curtains and turn it into a custom trim job! This is a great way to add a little personality to a drab curtain panel. Any local fabric store will have left over remnants that are at discounted prices! I found a curtain fabric remnant that was large enough to trim all 6 of my panels, and went to work! And a little secret, when I made these, I still had not touched my 3 yr old sewing machine (I know, terrible). But I am a BIG fan of iron-on hems! I used the heavy-duty kind for these curtains and it worked great! So even those of you who don't think you are crafty enough for this project, all you need is a pair of scissors, an iron, and the iron-on hem you can get anywhere (Wal-mart, for example). For about $20 worth of fabric I have 6 almost-new curtain panels!
