Curtains are a great way to add style and warmth to any room in your house. They provide privacy, block out light and cold drafts, and can even contribute to lower utility bills. However, custom curtains are extremely expensive. A cheaper alternative to custom curtains is to hem curtains you already own or to hem ready-made curtains available at any department store. Even if you have very little experience with sewing, hemming curtains is quick and easy.
Trim the excess fabric from the folded portion of the curtain, but leave at least 4 inches for the new hem.
