How I made my boys happy!


Boys… what do you do when you have two boys and they are tired of their plain curtains and want Mickey Mouse?


This would be an ok change if I had two Mickey Mouse curtains, not one.

I repurposed what I had. So can you.

Here’s how I did it.


I cut the one curtain in half and recreate two panels.

I had one plain curtain panel that I also cut in two and attached to each back to block out the sun.

First things first, iron the curtains before cutting. I then used my rotary cutter, bought for quilting to cut each curtain in half.

Then I hemmed the top and bottom of each panel. Once hemmed, I pinned the curtain to the plain backing and sewed them together.


I used the tab top of the plain panel to create a tube for the rod. The tabs were too long. I doubled down the tab top and sewed across them.


When I had the plain panel attached to the back, I noticed that the panel sagged on the rod.

My solution — I constructed six simple tabs to fill the gaps and provide the necessary support.


Once the sides of the tabs were sewn, I doubled them over and pinned them to fill in the gaps.

Next, I sewed the top and bottom of each tab to create the same tube structure for the rod.


Once completed, I replaced the older curtains in my boys’ bedroom with the refashioned Mickey Mouse ones.


Happy Boys!!!!!!!!!
