There were no striped curtains anywhere to be found! So I took the plain brown Ikea panels that were already hanging in my living room, fusible web (the iron on, no sew stuff) and then the light tan material which was pretty thick almost like a drop cloth.
I measured, figured the number of stripes and cut them out about 3 or 4 inches wider than the width of the brown panel. To cut my lines straight I traced the edge of a yard stick with a pencil and just cut along those lines. The way I hemmed was I folded over and ironed down all the edges of each stripe, not using the webbing yet, just so the edges were nice and wouldn't fray.
Next I started ironing the fusible webbing on to the back side of each stripe. Then lay the large panel out flat and pin down the stripe making sure it is straight across and slowly stripe by stripe iron them all on. This takes awhile!
You can see in this picture how I finished the edges, I just folded over to the back side and ironed it down. I made these last summer and there has been no problems with them at all. But I am afraid of what might happen if I washed them because I don't know how that webbing stuff would hold up?
So that is how I did it! If you can find material with huge stripes...I'm jealous! But if not, hope this helps.
