Can't Make Your Own Curtains? Hack Them

While curtains are easy to make, for someone like me who is not great with a sewing machine, sewing my own seems a little intimidating. While I'm sure whatever I made would look fine, I would forever see any teeny-tiny imperfections I made on the seams. Perfectionist? Me? Sadly, yes. Then I started thinking -- if I can't make them, maybe I can hack them? I found some easy modifications that can take curtains from drab to fab.
Change Tab Top Curtains to Pocket Curtains

I have a set of tab top curtains that are fine but I don't love them. I find the tabs make the curtains look cheap. I like Allison's simply solution to cut them off and turn my tab top curtains into pocket curtains.
