How to Sew Cafe Style Curtains

 I thought I would share with y’all my tutorial on how to sew cafe style curtains.  I revealed these curtains last week in my rustic farmhouse kitchen post.  I really love cafe style curtains in here because they block more light to protect our wood floors while still allowing us to see out at all times.  The kitchen faces the back of the house and I love the light streaming in at all times of the day.  However they really don’t make these style curtains for big windows.  Well y’all can make custom sized cafe style curtains for yourself easily!
