    how to hem curtains without sewing

  • Betty Millar

    IKEA curtains: Measure how much to hem while the curtain is hanging . Pull your ironing board over to the window and measure the portion to remove using your ironing board as a craft table. Use starch to crease along the ‘to be hemmed’ portion with your iron (while they’re still hanging). Iron the adhesive strip along the fold (yep, still hanging)

    During my education in 90s at School of Arts and Design in Finland there were also taught another technique, hem in the same step as knitting. After the first rows you fold the hem and knit together with the stitches you left on a waste yarn (the start row).

    Clever, less bulk

    Yes, that's right, it brings a more neat result. This is practiced especially when you machine knitting where the start row often is on a waste yarn.
