I cannot tell you how many times I have wrangled with a tape measure. They are easy enough to use when you have to measure distances that are only 3 or 4 feet, but beyond that, they become a pain, especially when you are all on your own for the job. Well, have I got a solution for you?! Meet my new best friend, the Bosch GLM 15laser measure. We are kind of in love with each other.

When it comes to measuringdecorative pillow shams, nothing is more difficult for me than measuring the length for curtains. I typically make curtains myself, so I am not dealing with a pre-fab length. Instead, I have to hang my curtain rod at the height I want it and THEN I measure for the curtains. It's a PAIN with a measuring tape, especially when Joe is on shift and I am by myself. But, not with the Bosch GLM 15. With just one button to push, you can easily measure long distances in a matter of seconds. It's seriously awesome.

I just got mine and was beyond excited to whip it out this weekend while I was working on making curtains for our master bedroom. I hung the curtain rods first. Then I measured from the top of the curtain rod to the floor. In two seconds, I had a precise measurement without zerofrustration. I just aimed, pointed the laser on the floor, and pressed the button.

Now, read on to learnhow to make curtains out of sheets! It's so, so easy and inexpensive!

Materials Needed:


1) Measure the length that your finished curtains will need to be. Hem the the twin sheet to the desired length. Mine required a finished length of 96 inches. I opted touse thetop of the sheet as the bottom of my curtain, since it gives the look of a nice, finished hem. That means I placed the hem at the bottom of the sheet, which became the TOP of my curtain. 2) Cut ribbon into 3 inch lengths and pin them on the back of the top of your curtain, approximately 8 inches apart. 3) Sew the ribbon tabs in place. I stitched the tabs approximately 1/3 of an inch from each edge of the ribbon. It took about 4 minutes per panel/sheet. That's it! Beautiful back tab curtains in minutes. Best of all, my twin sheets cost only $9.00 each, so this pair of curtains cost only $18.00. I have never seen {attractive} curtains for such a low price.
