I'm very proud of these curtains i made for my sons' bedroom. it was even worth listening to my husband nagging for weeks about bags of fabric scraps. they are made from old curtains and clothes bought from jumble sales.

WOW!  You should be proud!
Those are fantastic!  And when your son no longer wants them, you can use them to make a throw and some pillows!!!

I bet they probably keep the light out well too - they're terrific! Did you line them with anything? Did you make any sort of tie-backs for them, or do they stay closed all of the time? (They're so pretty, it would seem almost a shame to tie them back, but I'm a fresh air freak - gotta open those windows every once in a while!)

Those are beautiful!!!
That's such a great way to recycle fabric scraps. I'd never thought to make curtains.
And a few weeks is definitely NOT a long time for fabric to hang around. Silly man! Smiley
