I shared with you guys that our back door did not have blinds or curtains, along with our kitchen window. Now there aren’t many people around us, but we still didn’t like the fact that someone could peek in on us. Solution: a little bit of good ‘ol country time denim and 30 minutes. Okay, maybe my supply list was a bit longer than that. These are not fancy curtains by any means, something simple, but fitting to our style (Kevin decided he wanted denim–to match our couch pillows I covered, of course!). In a book with stories from military wives, one thing I read was that throughout my military life I would spend a lot of money for curtains that fit all of our many homes. Going along with my DIY life, I thought I would just make some. It is cheaper that way and if these curtains don’t fit our next home, I’ll use the fabric for something else.
First, the way I constructed them. Measure your window, add 2 inches to the width and 3 inches to the length. This is how I did it as I made 1/4 inch seams along sides and bottom and a 2 inch seam for the loop to go around my rod. Now, your measurements may be a little different so the only thing you need to take from this: Do not cut your fabric to the exact size of your window!
At night, the handkerchief is laid over the top or the magnetic rod.
Okay, so I realized how poor the picture quality was after I uploaded the photos. I thought it would be cool to get the snow falling, but I’ll try to remember to take another picture tonight when it’s not brighter outside than inside.
