They certainly aren't anything fancy, just a flat panel, but this is something I've never done before! I wanted to make it darker in my office during the day, so I don't get the glare from the windows on my computer screen. I had this bolt of heavy, dark navy fabric just sitting around, so thought I'd put it to good use. I had gotten this fabric on the clearance table back in 2005, for like $2 a yard, so the curtains really only cost me about $8 to make, and they work perfectly! They ended up turning out really good, except I wish the fabric had been a bit wider itself. I wanted a little more floof to them, you know how curtains bunch up when you put them on the rod. But, I suppose, it's such a heavy fabric, it may not have done that anyway. Now I'm motivated to make curtains for the bedroom finally!
