Iron on interfacing
The size of your fabric varies depending on what size you want your pockets to be. This tutorial is for the larger pockets.
Cut one piece of fabric and one contrasting piece 20″ long and 6-1/2″ wide
Cut one piece of fabric 5″ long x 5″ wide. This is what your going to be putting the curtain rod through so make sure it will fit your rod. Fold the 5×5 piece in half and see if your rod will fit through it. If not, adjust the size accordingly.
Cut a piece of interfacing 20″ x 6-1/2, the same length.
Iron on interfacing to wrong side of fabric.
In this order lay fabric flat: Contrasting fabric piece right side down, then lay outer fabric piece wrong side down on top of the contrasting piece. Pen in place.
Put a 1/4″ hem on each end at top.
Fold up in half, wrong sides together. Sew up both side edges.
Sew the corners by marking 1″ on each corner with a fabric pen. Sew straight across marked area on both corners.
Your corners will look like this when finished.
Turn right side out.
Put 5″ x 5″ piece together with wrong sides facing each other, sew up the sides and ends leaving one small opening for turning right side out.
Find the center of the top pocket and the center of the 5″ x 5″ piece and place the 5″ x 5″ piece at the top of the pocket. Sew onto one edge of the pocket. This is what you’re going to put the curtain rod through. So only sew on about 1/4″ to the pocket so you will leave enough room to put the curtain rod through.
