1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Opinions for a project, please! on: June 24, 2011 08:59:13 AM
HI! I'm not sure if this should have been put in interior decorating or crafty housewares. But, anyways...

I'm brand spanking new, but have been lurking for a while. Recently, I've moved into a new apartment and need some curtains for the big window in the living room. Its 50" tall by about 70" wide. I've bought some el-cheapo curtains to modify because curtains are super expensive and I probably can't find anything on the clearance table to suit my tastes.

So I bought some satin-y hot pink and sheer lime green curtains. The original plan was to line the hot pink for insulation and light-blocking purposes and doubling the lime green so that it is more prominent. I'm sewing the hot pink and lime green together at the top, leaving the lime green free flowing so that when you pull the hot pink to the side, the lime green is exposed. the lime green will also be seen from the parking lot. I am considering cutting them short, because the couch will be placed right underneath the window and I don't want the curtains to be sat on or pulled on by the couch. They are currently 84" long.

What I am afraid of happening is that as soon as I line the hot pink, the hot pink glow in the living room will cease. so should I buy more of the same curtain and sew them together, making the curtain thicker?

I would love suggestions and opinions.
