Cut two panels from your fabric with scissors. Make each panel 6 1/2 feet by 1 foot.
Fold the long sides of the fabric over 1/4 inch, then fold them over a second time so the raw edges of the fabric are trapped within the fold. Sew along each folded seam to secure the hem,
Fold the top and bottom 1 3/4 inches of each panel over to form rod pockets. Fold the raw edge under by 1/4 inch and sew along the fold with your sewing machine to form the completed rod pocket while hiding the raw edge of the fabric.
Iron each panel, smoothing out any wrinkles.
Frame and Assembly
Place a PVC elbow on either end of 6-foot, 1-inch diameter PVC pipe. Insert a 1-foot pipe into the open end of each of the two elbows.
Slide the 1-foot pipes through the top and bottom rod pockets on one of the fabric panels. Attach a PVC three-way connector to the end of each 1-foot pipe.
Slide a second 6-foot pipe into the three-way connectors to finish the frame for the first panel of the screen. Insert 1-foot pipes into the remaining opening on each three-way connector.
Slide the second fabric panel onto the 1-foot pipes. Attach a PVC elbow to the end of each of the pipes one the panel is in place.
Insert the final 6-foot pipe into the elbow opening, completing the frame. Stand the fabric screen on end to use. The V-shape of the frame supports the fabric panels.
