I bought this fabric at Joanne's for $1 a yard.  I bought 3 yards, cut it in half along the long fold and I used fusable webbing that you would normally use for hemming your pants to make the hems and top rod pocket (I was feeling lazy). These are for my 14 year old daughter's room, she is a bit of a tom boy (not that there is anything wrong with that) to say the least so I opted to leave off a ruffle on top. They matched perfectly with the crazy yellow of her walls.  The pattern is skateboarders incase you can't tell. Thanks for looking.

Before you wash them, you might want to go ahead and stitch it down. My best friend did that same treatment to make her grandson's bedroom curtains and the first time they were washed the fusible started to turn loose. So being the nice person that I am, I came to the rescue and stitched everything back together.
