  • How do you cut IKEA curtains perfectly straight?

  • Using a big quilting ruler or other straightedge, use more pins or a fabric pen to form a straight line from one edge pin to the center pin. Repeat to reach the other side and on both panels. Ideally this would follow the grain, but again, IKEA curtains… not necessarily cut perfectly straight.

  • Do I need to hem IKEA curtains?

  • As you may know, IKEA’s curtains come un-hemmed. The raw edge is finished with the serger, and you can cut off and/or hem as needed to the right length. They sell no-sew iron-on hem tape, but I’ve never had much luck with that stuff and I know a seam will be more durable in the long run.

  • How long are IKEA curtains?

  • long, which is too short for my windows (I put the rods near the ceiling since we don’t have window frames). But IKEA’s curtains are typically 98 long (also too short for my dining and living room but long enough for the bedrooms), and they make a few styles in 118 long. That’s what I needed.

  • What’s the difference between IKEA curtains and target’s curtains?

  • Target makes some very cute curtains but they’re all 84 long, which is too short for my windows (I put the rods near the ceiling since we don’t have window frames). But IKEA’s curtains are typically 98 long (also too short for my dining and living room but long enough for the bedrooms), and they make a few styles in 118 long.
