In order to make shabby chic curtains   one should pick out a number of thrifted sheets as well as curtains and cut   them out with similar widths. Then they need to be sewn into long rows. These   rows then need to be sewn into panels. In order to increase the durability of   the curtains, one can zigzag over the long seams and then hem the sides as   well as the bottom. Incase one has vintage sheets which are the same width as   the window, then it can be used as the top rows on the panels and can be used   for the rod pockets as well.
