I am Sherry Tyra, the Assistant Designer for HGTV's Designed to Sell and owner of Custom Home Interior Creations. We are learning how to make No-Sow Window Treatments today. Now that we have the fabric already to put on the batten, let me show you how to do this, it's so simple. All you do is you take here with the fabric, this is that raw edge that you turned under on the top, these are your side seams, your hem is at the bottom. You will position this over the batten, set the batten up on it's side, so the narrow side is up and you'll put your fabric right over the top of that. Now, this is a little tip when you are actually doing your side seams, make sure before you finish that last bit of fusible tape on the side seam, that you kind of hold that fabric up to the batten to make sure that you are just about the same width you can be just all may be eighth or quarter inch over on each side because you have a little bit of leeway there. We have taken a quarter inch off on the batten. So, just make sure that you are pretty accurate. Sometimes, that we get into far then your wood is going to show when it's mounted on the window. So you want to make sure that the fabric is completely covering the wood. Then you can adjust that last side seam before you put the fusible iron on tape on. So, anyway we have the fabric finished, we are going to lay it on the top narrow edge of this batten. I just staple gun it on again, be careful with the staple gun, don't point that on anyone or yourself, perfect. Then we come over, stretch the fabric nice and taut across the wood and staple this side, just like that, then go the middle and then just do few more staples along the top. Now some of the staples don't sink perfectly, you might want to take a hammer and just kind of bang over the top of them, just so that they are nice and flush on your wood and that's it, we are all set. Now, the last tip, we have two different styles of window treatments we're using today, we are making, one is this rolled, the other one is a gathered window treatment and depending on which one you make, you might want to add a dowel into the hem of your window treatment. This would be the one that you would add the dowel into, that way when you lower the window treatment, there is a little bit of weight to help it, hit the bottom of the window cell. This one is a little bit different because since it's gathered and looped here, you can't put the dowel in, obviously the dowel make it very straight and rigid, so this type of window treatment will not use a dowel. You are going to want to use it for this one. So you have the batten attached at the top, take your dowel and you have created this little pocket, just insert it in the hem. It might be just a stitch type, but you can work it on in, work it through the window treatment, work it all the way to the other end. Once you have it in there, then you can just take a heavy pair of scissors or like these little wire snips and just snip off the excess, just like that. Make sure it's in there good, and this gives you some nice weight to your window treatment, so that when you do lower it, just kind of go down nice and easy. Okay, the next step will be attaching the ribbons, so stay tuned.
