In this regard, how do you add tab tops to curtains?

Attach the tabs to the curtain. Fold the tabs in half (with the seam on the inside) and place them upside down on the curtain, lining up the raw edges of each tab with the raw edge of the top of the curtain. Pin the tabs in place. Sew each tab to the top of the curtain using a half-inch (1.3 cm) seam allowance.

Likewise, how do you measure fabric for tab top curtains? To determine the best length, wrap a fabric scrap around the mounted rod and measure the desired distance from the rod to the curtain top, then add 1" for seams (2). The curtain top should be at least 2" below the rod. Use 1 1/2 times the desired finished width for each panel's cut size to allow for gentle folds.

Similarly one may ask, how wide should tab top curtains be?

The number of tabs you'll need depends on the width of your curtain. Account for about 5″-7″ of space between the tabs. These tabs will have a little over 6” in between. Facing Piece: Cut a piece that is 2″ wider than your finished curtain width and about 3” to 5″ high.

How do I make curtain rings?

Pin the eyelet tape along the top edge of the fabric and sew into place. Draw around the inside of each ring with a fabric pen, then cut out these circles to create the eyelet holes. 3) Press the eyelets into place at the front of the curtain. Fold the bottom 2cm of the panel under and lightly iron.
