    Measure the window dimensions. My window is small, so I could use a pillowcase with minimal cutting.

    Remember when you measure, you want to add an inch at the bottom for a hem, and a two inches at the top to fold over for the sleeve where the curtain rod fits through.

    Fold over one-inch around the remaining edges of the sheet, ironing and pinning as you go. If your sheet does not have a hem at the top, fold over a two-inch piece of fabric. This is where you will feed the curtain rod through.
