Our kitchen window was lacking in the curtain department. I decided to head over to Pinterest to see what I could find. I found this tutorial. It was simple, easy and would only cost me 6 beans. The spring-rod curtain rods were $3 a piece, I already had a scrap of fabric left over from making a throw pillow a while back and some no-sew iron tape. All I needed to do was fold the fabric and seal the seams with the tape.
So as I expected I didn't do a great job of making sure the seams were exactly straight, but it will do for now. It only cost me a few dollars and the time of one nap session, so if I want to scrap this one and make something else, no big loss.
I would have liked to make three tiers like in the tutorial, but it would block out too much light as it's our only window in the kitchen.
