Adding Trim to Curtain Panels

Remember when I was all excited about getting my new ironing board cover and mentioned that I was adding some trim to my curtain panels? I did finish them, and here is the finished product...

I know that last picture is terrible lighting, but I couldn't get it to be any better, even with camera adjustments while it was facing the direct light from the window. I originally made these panels from painter's drop cloth. They are such a perfect weight, color and they insulate well, but I thought they needed a little more. I purchased some grosgrain ribbon from Joann's and for a couple of dollars, I succeeded in updating the existing panels. I used the iron on hemming tape so it was EASY to attach!


  1. I use black grosgrain on lots of things, even for tying up long cable cords. Makes them look so much prettier. Great job on the curtains. Snazzy.
