Attach the tabs to the curtain. Measure out the desired spacing for your tabs,marking where the center of each tab will go with a fabric marker or chalk. Fold the tabs in half (with the seam on the inside) and place them upside down on the curtain,lining up the raw edges of each tab with the raw edge of the top of the curtain.

How do you attach tabs to a curtain?
Attach the facing to the top of the curtain. Lay the facing right-side down over the curtain top and the tabs, lining up the raw edges. Pin the facing in place and sew along the top at a half-inch (1.27 cm) seam allowance. Open up the fabric at the seam and press the tabs and the facing upward.
How do you measure for curtain tabs?
Measure from the top of the curtain rod to the very top of the window frame. This is important because you want to ensure your curtains completely cover the top of the window. Therefore, when hung over the curtain rod, the finished tabs must be shorter than this gap. Measure and calculate the length of the fabric.
What are tab top curtains and how are they made?
Tab top curtains have evenly spaced fabric tabs attached to the top, and these tabs are how the curtain attaches to the rod. As far as DIY projects are concerned, making tab top curtains is quite simple, and a basic set of curtains only requires the fabric and a sewing machine (or a needle and thread if you don have a machine).
What can I use to tie back curtains?
Use bits of holiday or seasonal fabric, decorative scarves or runners, or festive ribbons to tie back your curtains. Change them out every season or for each holiday. Let’s say you have a pair of white panels in your living room window. For Christmas, you might use a red velvet ribbon as a tieback.
