** If you want your drapes to always puddle, then you can skip the measuring and jump right to hemming. If you want your drapes shorter, so they don't hit the floor, use this pin to measure up from for your desired length.

Great tip!!!! Buy tablecloths to use as draperies....much less expensive, already hemmed, meant to launder often, and many patterns and colors available! 60x84 or buy 60x104 so you can hem them AND still have matching fabric left over for pillows or other coordinating pieces!

Don't toss out curtains you love just because they don't fit your new windows or need to be replaced. Instead, cut and sew them into panel-style window shades with rod pockets. Tension rods hold the shades in place and make them easy to change or remove. This trick also works to make outdated fabrics or drapery styles look trendy again.
