Simple Cafe Curtains

Source: Martha Stewart Living Television


Fashion a charming pair of cafe curtains using linen fabric and orange twill tape.


  • Twill tape (1 1/2 inches longer than the curtain's width)

  • Two pieces of linen (1 1/2 inches wider and 5 inches longer than your window)

  • Curtain rod

  • Socket brackets


  1. Sew a simple straight stitch along the edge of the twill tape. To make the channel for the rod, use the same straight stitch to hem the edge, then fold over 2 inches for the channel. Hand-sew the twill tape, using a tacking stitch, to give the panel a professionally finished look (about 3 to 5 stitches will secure the ends).

  2. Before hanging, press the curtain, and slide the curtain rod through the channel. Use socket brackets for hanging.
