After reading Alicia's post about her very fabulous curtains and reading the comments that followed, I am inspired to let all you sewing challenged out there know of a wonderful product called Heat N Bond. You can do about anything with this stuff. I once made a bridesmaid's dress top almost exclusively with this great stuff, and I've hemmed pants a couple times. It holds. And, it is available at Walmart, so rejoice! There are varying strengths for different types of cloth, but don't let that scare you!
Here's a picture of the package, along with instructions on how you can make your own curtains sans sewing machine. (you will want to buy 1/2 Heat n Bond) Happy Faking!
