Not because they are so amazing but because they instantly have me rethinking all the cheap-o curtains I bought at TJ Max that are hanging around my house. They were just so easy and allow an easy change up if I ever feel the need for a change in scenery around here.
Here's what I did:
STEP 1: Obtain desirable fabric at appropriate length for your windows. This was some of my Marimekko fabric that measures just under 60 inches long across and is a nice heavier weight. I had enough length to cut it in half, one for each side.
STEP 2: Finish edges. I left the selvedges as my sides so that didn't require any sewing to finish (and I like to preserve the name and designer of the particular Marimekko I used-its what the Finns seemed to do). I then sewed a two inch hem on the top of the fabric and a three inch hem on the bottom.
STEP 3: Head to Bed, Bath and Beyond (or another such store) and get yourself some drapery rings. I used one for each panel.
STEP 4: Clip those guys at equal measures across the top (two inch hem) side of the panel and hang her up.
The whole process (besides the drive to BBB) took about fifteen minutes and I think they look great. If I get tired of these fabrics its no big deal to swap them out with something else and the stitches would come out very easily so that I could reuse this fabric for something else.
