Red Burlap CurtainsAdvertisement
Red Burlap Curtains – Believe it or not, I was making great use of burlap sacks I found a few months ago. It seems my creativity is flowing and I keep coming up with very simple but useful ideas for them. For now, I will share how I made simple unstitched curtains from a single jute sack. You should already know that I really like working with jute. I love the natural fiber and the raw element it brings to the room. We hope to start work on our kitchen next year and I’m looking forward to this opportunity. However, in the meantime, I am looking for ways to insulate the space. There is a large window that really frames the wall above the sink. Although a simple solution, blinds actually hide everything an open window has to offer. It just couldn’t be covered. Since I am aiming for a country style kitchen, jute panels will fit perfectly with the window. So I gathered my supplies and got to work. Here are the materials I used:
(I used the back of two bags, so I only used 1 bag in total. If you’re using burlap bags, you’ll need to specify if you need to work on one side for this project. If you’re using plain fabric, you don’t have this problem.)

This is not a sewn project, so don’t expect any brilliant ideas here. Follow along as I do my best to describe how this project worked for me. First, I made the appropriate cuts in the bags. My burlap sacks had a continuous pattern on one side, so I decided to turn them over and cut off the back. I then made a horizontal cut which gave me two equal pieces. This gave me 4 separate pieces of fabric. My specific measurements are approximately 24 inches wide and 17 inches long. In total, I used one bag and saved the patterned pages for future projects.

Then it was time to measure and mark the cut pieces to the desired length and width. I ended up going down about 1 inch on all four ends. I made the marks, ironed them flat, then added heat and glue under the marked area. Then I ironed the hem to set it. I did it 16 times. This may seem like a lot, but once you start seeing the results of one, you’ll want to keep going.
Once you’ve cut out all four panels, it doesn’t hurt to make sure they’re all ironed out before proceeding. By the way, warm linen does not smell very good.
Finally, I hung them on curtain rings (I used 3 per panel) and then placed them on a curtain rod in the coffee shop. Jute is very light, so the coffee shop was perfect. Again, these are my instructions on how this design worked best for me. I hope this can be of help to you as well. I recommend this no-sew method for most types of fabric, not just jute. I decided to cut costs by using more of what I had on hand.
However, these no-sew curtains aren’t too bad for $2.50. They will be used to insulate the space until we can plan to take care of the kitchen. Now finish the dining table.
