TENT FLAP CURTAINS

Stylish tent-flap curtains provide a tailored, uncluttered look.

 


 

YOU WILL NEED

Decorative fabric and lining for curtains.

Mounting board: for outside mount, board should extend at least 1” (2.5 cm) on each side of window frame and be deep enough to clear window by 2” (5 cm). For inside mount, cut 1” x 2” (2.5 x 5 cm) to fit inside window

Two tieback holders or two wooden blocks.

Two angle irons for mounting

Heavy-duty stapler, staples.

 

HOW TO SEW A TENT-FLAP CURTAIN

 


  1. Pin face fabric to lining, right sides together, and stitch three sides in œ” (1.3 cm) seam, leaving upper edge open.

 


  1. Press one seam allowance back to make it easier to turn a crisp, sharp edge. Trim seam allowance across corners. Turn panels right side out, and press.

 


  1. Mark finished length across the top if the panels, making sure that both panels are exactly even and that end is at perfect right angle to sides.

 


  1. Align panel length marking with front edge of mounting board. Staple panel to board, starting at return. At corner, make diagonal fold to form a miter. Panels overlap about 1” (2.5 cm) at center.

 


  1. Mount board with angle irons positioned at edge of window frame.

 


  1. Fold the front edges of the panels back to side edges, and adjust opening. Measure to be sure they are even on both sides.

 


7. Hand-tack two layers together, and finish with decorative or covered button. Or hand-tack ties at front edge and sides. To maintain projection at sides, attach panel to tieback holder or wooden block attached to window frame behind ties.

 


Inside mounting. Cut panels half the finished width of mounting board, plus 2” (5 cm). Sew as for steps 1 to 3. mount panels on top of board. Fold flap; tack to side of curtain. At side, sew ring to curtain back; attach to cup hook inside frame.
