I’ve got a free guideline for you at the end of this post, so be sure to grab that after watching today’s video.
Sometimes people make more of something than is really necessary. They may pretend they have expensive, high-end tools and equipment because they’re needed. I get it that we want nice things. But, do we really and truly need them?
To dispel any misconceptions of what’s truly needed, I’m here to tell you the absolute truth.
I’m sure many people sew window treatments with fancy tools and gadgets. For those of you who are holding back from sewing because you think it’s too expensive to get started, here are my five essential tools I use when making window treatments.
I made this video for my Curtain Panel e-Course students, and I wanted you to have access to this information, too. If I could only have five things, these are the ones I’d choose.
Just over a year ago, I covered the truth about sewing machines. I speak of it briefly in the video, but to read all about that, visit this post (but remember to grab the freebie first). 🙂

First of all, my favorite scissors are available for extremely good prices at Amazon*. I apologize to the left-handed among us. Interior Design Diva is a leftie, and I found Gingher scissors for her a few years ago. I searched and searched but couldn’t find them for you today, though. So sorry!
You can find a T-square at HobLob, but here’s one at Amazon* that looks to be the same.
My favorite industrial tape in the entire world (and, I’ve been through many of these) is made by Stanley, which has served my needs the BEST. Here’s the Amazon* link.
Here are a couple of other items you might need for making curtain panels.
Although I teach in the Curtain Panel e-Course how to make buckram strips from flat-fold buckram, you can order it ready to go on the roll from Amazon.* A time saver for sure.
For making panels, we always need drapery weights. I notice the price at Amazon* has decreased since my last personal order.
Now for the freebie. I’ve put together a simple guideline for making curtain panels. It includes the procedures that are necessary for each step in the process, and in the proper order, too. Enjoy! 🙂
