Allison from The Golden Sycamore shows how you can make a curtain from a drop cloth, no sewing required. The drop cloth is an inexpensive source of yardage, while a contrast panel across the top adds a splash of color and interest. She makes it a no-sew project by assembling it with hot glue, though you could easily sew this on your machine if you want the curtains to be washable. Get the tutorial at The Golden Sycamore.
