How to Make Drop Cloth Curtains with a no-sew Fabric Edge!

I finally jumped on the drop cloth curtain bandwagon! I was a little bit skeptical that they would look to casual in my more traditional home but when I found a scrap of beautiful toile fabric I knew it would dress them right up. All I had to do was wash and dry the drop cloths to get them nice and soft. Then I measured to be sure I had the right length/width for my windows. The toile fabric was cut accordingly (length of the curtains) and added using stitch witchery. No sewing!! I love how it looks now...what do you think? ~Vanessa

      That has always been my question when people say they love drop cloths for sofa covers. I sure wouldn't want to iron a sofa cover. Maybe the un-ironed doesn't look as bad as I think it does?

    Washing them first is essential, I think. Cotton, after a couple of washings, will then be as shrunk as it will ever be. Know I'm wondering how much the cloths sell for. The fabric you used is perfect, @At The Picket Fence. Will show my daughter who wants something great in her living room.

    Very nicely done! The fabric trim adds an especially nice touch and could be changed eventually if one wanted. Great job!
