You’ve decided to make some window treatments, so you head off to the store to shop for fabric. You find something you think would be perfect! But…then you ask yourself,
How much fabric do I need to buy?
How much will I really need?
Measuring Windows and Hanging Rods clarifies the ins and outs for you. Measuring your window parameters is the very first step – before you can really begin anything else. And, for further measurements, you need the rod mounted on the wall.
Plus, if your chosen fabric has a pattern repeat, you’ll need to calculate that into the equation. Does this make you want to give up on the idea of making curtains before you ever get started?
I thought so. That’s why I designed this worksheet for you. To simplify things and give you all the numbers you need for three types of panels.
Plain (Flat Header) or Grommet Panels
Rather than trying to explain everything about yardage calculations, I thought I’d just give you the download. For free!
Simply print the worksheet pages and either laminate them or slide the pages inside sheet protectors.
This way, you can easily write your computations with dry erase marker – and then wipe them away when you’ve finished making your curtain panels.
The worksheet guides you through the calculation process. I’ve done all the work for you! You just fill in the blanks.
Update: I explained how to use the worksheet on Facebook Live and returned to share it in this post.
So head on over to get your printable worksheet pages. I believe this will make your life much easier. 🙂
Do you think this will be your new go-to for calculating yardage?
