    Tab top curtains are even easier to make. All you have to do is follow the basic drape tutorial, but instead of pleating at the end, you would sew the tabs (between the decorative fabric and the liner) equally spaced across the top.

    Uh-huh!! Easy for you to say - obviously you're an accomplished seamstress!! Wish you were close by . . . . You're going to cringe when I tell you this but years ago I bought enough yardage to make tab-tops for my fam. rm. windows. It was the Waverly barn red stripe that you still see alot of. Things happen and life got interrupted so still have not done anything with it!! How pathetic & sad is that?
