We need:

Bucket, fabric paint (for interior decorating) gloves white semi-transparent fabric made of natural fibers (desired height of the curtain + 4 cm x width of the window) ribbon (width of the curtain + 60 cm) safety pin scissors sewing machine tesa Powerstrips® Hook Large CLASSIC

How we do it:

Kitchen curtains / Step 1

Collect all required items and let's start!

Kitchen curtains / Step 2

Sew a "tunnel" on the upper border of the fabric: fold and roughly stitch 2 x 2 cm. Fold the fabric longwise, creating a narrow strip. Prepare the dye bath according to the manufacturer's instructions and shortly dip the wet fabric to 5 cm before the desired color height into the color - then immediately pull it out a bit. The color will bleed up higher into the fabric. Allow the color to soak in and then again pull out a bit of fabric. Repeat the procedure several times until the desired color gradient is achieved. Wash the fabric thoroughly, let dry and iron. Remove hanging threads around the open borders.

Using the safety pin, pull the ribbon through the tunnel.
