The front room curtains

It's been a couple months in the making, but I finally got the front room curtains done recently. It seemed like every time I would begin working on them again, something would come up. The last thing we installed were the hold backs for the tall skinny windows.

Here's a picture of our living area. The same sized windows are on the opposite side of the big room, where we have our dining area.

I bought the fabric for $2/yard at Wal-mart. I sewed a lining on each panel using matching broadcloth that I bought at Joann's.

Because two of the windows have two panels each, we can easily pull them open during the day then pull them shut at night. The holdbacks pull back the other two window panels to the side, because there is only one panel on each of them.

Both the rods and holdbacks came from the Better Homes and Gardens collection from Wal-mart.

This is one of the windows with just one panel. Isn't the fabric just gorgeous? I'm so glad that I found it when I did. I even have some extra fabric to use for making matching pillows or a table runner. The possibilities are endless!

Happy sewing! :)
