I received lots of Pioneer Woman Collection dishes, pots and pans and other odds and ends for Christmas. After we returned home, I got to get them all out and played with them. Then I decided I wanted a new curtain for the kitchen because the old one didn't match anymore. I went to Pinterest of course and then the light bulb went on! Ding!

I can run a pretty straight line (mostly) and the end product was all that mattered to me and I love how it turned out!

NOTE: My kitchen window measures 33" x 33".  If your window is smaller or larger, you may end up with a totally different look.
I started with a 70" round tablecloth in the Country Garden print from Walmart. You can find it HERE.  I paid $13.96 for mine and got two small curtains out of it.

First you'll want to wash and dry your new tablecloth to prevent any shrinkage in the future.  Next, I cut mine directly in half.

I knew I wanted a big ruffle on the top so after I had it cut in half I held it up to my window to see how far down I wanted it to hang.  I decide to cut 12" off the unfinished side to make my ruffle.

I needed a sleeve for the tension rod to slide through so I used the other half of the table cloth that was left over and I cut a 3" piece from that.

I folded the edges to the center and then pressed it for stitching.

Next I pinned the sleeve to the curtain back only, I left the ruffle out.  I ran a stitching line on the very lower edge of the sleeve and then the very upper edge of the sleeve.  Lastly, I pressed the whole curtain using some spray starch for a crisp smooth finish.

I threaded the curtain onto the tension rod and then placed it in the window and fluffed as needed to achieve the look I wanted.  I hate that our window frames are a dark color, but that's whole other post isn't it! lol!

    Great job on the curtains, beautiful. But do they go with that backsplash ?

    Could you add a venetian blind to pull up to top of window during day and down at night for privacy? It would be hidden by the curtain.

      Hi Sue! Yes, you could because the curtain is on a tension rod and would not conflict with added blinds.

    Just wondering I see white or very light window frames.Am I not looking at the right photo?

      The part that holds the glass...the part you’d grab to lift the window... is brown/black. The window ledge and surround are white.

    I love it! I was a 50’s girl and this looks like what we would have had. Probably did. It reminds me of my grandmothers house as well. You did a great job. It looks sweet and friendly.  Thank you
