I am not quite sure what came over me a few weeks ago, but I decided I had to find the fabric and make them. I logged on to Fabric.com, found my fabric for about $7 per yard, measured, ordered and on Sunday went to town.
Using heat and bond, my iron, patients and the Bachelorette I finished the first panel in just under an hour. The second one took about 45 minutes. Honestly if I knew it was going to be this easy I would have done it a long time ago. On Saturday we went to T@rget to get a curtain rod and clips. The whole project cost me about $90 which I think is pretty great.
The fabric sprawled out between my entry way-family room-eating area.
Fold fabric, place heat and bond in the correct location and iron. Easy as pie!
Bedroom window before. I hate vertical blinds!

Our new curtains!
I love them!
They do close completely which is great so I don't have to see those awful vertical blinds anymore.
The curtains completely change the room. I have found myself staring at them before I go to bed at night. Weirdo, I know ;) Pictures taken from my iphone so I apologize for the bad quality.
