I'm trying to make some curtains for my living room, and I've decided the best way to keep the heat out, since I'm not allowed to use window film, is to line some curtains with mylar blankets.  I bought some online, and they're extremely thin.  Thin like, single layer and see through.  I'm trying to think what would be the best way to attach them to the curtains.  Sewing would most likely be a pain and possibly wreck the material.  So, what would work then?  Stick on velcro?  Snaps?  Some other idea I haven't thought of?  I need to figure out something soon, it's already 95 today!  Thanks in advance.

Hrm... sandwhich the mylar in between two pieces of fabric and sew through 3 layers?

I live in Phoenix (115+ is not uncommon in the summer) and have canvas curtains over my windows- does a pretty good job of keeping the heat out acutally... if you can't get the mylar to work maybe some thicker material will suffice?
