I have been wanting to make some curtains to decorate the nursery since before he was born. Well, just over a year later, they are finally done. I am pretty happy with how they turned out, especially since they are the first curtains I have ever sewn.
It was a time-consuming process, but the tutorial on this blog made the process very straight-forward. I followed the majority of her instructions other than using ribbon for the tabs, (because I did not have any ribbon that was white that would blend in with my liner fabric), and using a sheet for the liner. I used a blackout liner, for its insulating and room-darkening properties.
Here are some pictures of the process.
