On an impulse buy at Ikea, I picked up these yellow curtains for my living room but I really should have measured first because they were way to short for my windows!  My husband wanted me to return them but I had some scraps of fabric lying around so I just added some to the bottom.  I ran into a few problems.  First, I couldn't find any fabric wide enough so I sewed a bunch of strips together & well, this is how it came out.  Not too shabby, huh?  I still need to get better acquainted with my sewing machine so anything I make with it impresses me.   Tongue  & pardon the wrinkles.  i still need to iron them out!

I like them, nice contrast of colors.  You could also do decorative stitching with your sewing machine to make the bottom part look quilted.
