First, head over to Home Depot to pick up a couple of hand towel rings and a canvas drop cloth.

2. Prepare the Drop Cloth

Grab your canvas drop cloth and fold it evenly in half lengthwise. Use sharp fabric scissors to cut along the fold.

3. Hem the Edges

To clean up the raw edge, use your no-sew hem tape and an iron.

This will hide any frayed material on your fabric and is also a great time to iron out any wrinkles on the panels themselves.

    I am curious, what is across the bottom half of your window? It looks like it could be screens but I don't see how the window opens (I don't think it does) which means it isn't screens, thanks for clearing this up for me!
