In order to make shabby chic curtains one should pick out a number of thrifted sheets as well as curtains and cut them out with similar widths. Then they need to be sewn into long rows. These rows then need to be sewn into panels. In order to increase the durability of the curtains, one can zigzag over the long seams and then hem the sides as well as the bottom.
