People also ask
What are tabs in curtains?
Tabs are tubes made from strips of fabric sewn a little below the top edge of the curtain at even distances apart. They may be made from the same fabric as the curtain itself or something that works with it, and are placed approximately two inches wide. Both ends are sewn to the back of the curtain to form a loop that cannot be seen from the front.
Are back tab curtains the best option for You?
If you don like opening and closing the drapes frequently, then back tab curtains are ideal. It is not easy to slide the tabs above a pole since the fabric rests straight on the rod.
How do you make tab top curtains?
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).
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.
