I'm not sure what to do with them.  They look so plain.  Any ideas?

Maybe you should put lace around the bottom of them?

I would sew a sheer layer over them and add lots of different colored sequins all over them Smiley

What do you like to do?  What have you got around?  You could:

Sew stripes, vertical or horizontal, to them.  A print, similar color, contrast color, sheer.  Or buy a fancy trim at a fabric store for this.

Applique or embroider something here and there.

Knit or crochet an edging.  Dye it to the same color family - maybe darker.  Sew it on the edges or in stripes.

Stamp or stencil.  I'd go for a big pattern.  Maybe dark purple or black.  Maybe a pastel.  Depends on what the rest of the room looks like.

If you don't need to keep them closed much, make some funky tie-backs. 

A row of tassesl across the top - again, lots of choices about color.

Let us know what you decide.
