I have a confession to make: I do not sew. Not yet, anyways. This caused a problem when I could not find the “perfect” window panels for my new craft room. I wanted funky and cool…something specific. Enter a fabulous artsy friend who suggested I try heat bonding seam tape. Yeah, she’s pretty much a genius. This stuff is now my favorite product!
When I began, I found that what worked best was to lay the fabric out along the length of my ironing board. As I went along the edge, folding down 1? of fabric, I ironed the crease. This saved me time later when I laid the tape under the seam, knowing it would stay in place while I applied heat.
I made two window panels and a panel to cover the closet where I had removed the door. This is no quick feat. To do it correctly, it will take a couple hours. But it is definitely worth it!
Clip to fabric and hang!
