Drop Cloth 10 Minute Curtains

I am still working on redecorating my bedroom and today I tackled the curtains.  If I had known how easy it was to make curtains from drop cloths, I would have gotten these done a lot sooner!
Did you know that drop cloths come already hemmed?  I didn't!  Imagine my surprise when I opened the packages and found that out!  Add that to the super cheap price of these babies and I couldn't have been happier.  This is all I had to do to have these lovelies. 
I bought them at Lowes for about 15 bucks per panel.  They were 9 feet by 6 feet.  Next I washed them.  Then I turned one short end under 6 inches and pressed.  I sewed a curtain pocket at 3 inches and 6 inches from the folded edge, ironed out the wrinkles and hung them on the old curtain rods.  Times the 10 minutes per panel and in 30 minutes I had 3 panels sewn and hung.  Yippee!  My vintage bedroom is one step closer to being done.  If you want to see other projects look here and here.  Diana
