How much fabric do I need for a window scarf? For example, if you want the window scarf to hang down 30 in (76 cm) on each side, and the window is 60 in (150 cm) wide, then you should buy 180 in (460 cm) of fabric. 22 in (56 cm) is a good width for a curtain scarf, but it is completely up to you and the look you are going for.
How do you make a curtain scarf?
How wide should a window scarf be? Measure across the top of the window with a tape measure. Measure down one side of the window to the approximate point where you want the bottom of the scarf to hang and double this measurement. Add the measurements together and add 1 1/2 inches to the total. This is the scarf’s length measurement.
