Once you’ve cut the fabric, fold, press, and sew the sides. Make sure the finished panel width will fit inside the frame. Then cut pieces of scrap wood for the tops and bottoms. Hem the top and bottom of each fabric panel to make a large pocket so the wood can slide inside like a curtain rod.
Slide that scrap wood right in the pocket and attach the fabric panels to the frame. Cut some small scraps of wood again to fit inside the width of the screen frame. Then screw through those scraps from the back into the scraps you’ve cut for the curtain rods on the front.
