I created pinch-pleats in my store bought curtains


For my dining room, I found some great curtain panels from Ballard's. What I didn't love about them, however, was the fact that they were rod-pockets {the curtain rod slides in a channel and is shirred on} and I prefer pinch-pleated {the top is pleated and attached with hooks onto rings}. But, I also knew that this was something I could do myself. I also like a much fuller panel than the typical 50-54" width that ready-mades usually provides. So, I ordered 4 panels--2 for each side. I'll show you step-by-step how you can 'pimp out' your own curtains:
