Curtains for the guest room

I've become fascinated and very entertained by making curtains, or maybe I should say, window mistreatments. For those of you unfamiliar with window mistreatments, you can read more about them on this blog, look on the side bar for more posts labeled "window mistreatments. Of course she is much more talented than I. None the less, with a new house, we have lots of bare windows, and treating them is quite pricey.

This is my attempt in the guest room of dressing up the windows. It involved nothing more than two fabric patterns, some trim, hot glue, safety pins, and a little fabric glue. They aren't exactly perfect, maybe a little bit too wide...but for now they are up, and will stay up, even with their little imperfections.

Not to wide at all, but are you saying there is no stitching at all involved with these?

Not a bit of thread or sewing was involved in these curtains!

I think the curtains look great... and you are doing a better job of it than I because I have been in this house for about 7 1/2 yrs and still only have curtains up in the bathroom and guestroom...How's that for lazy?
