This fabric was 44" wide x 110" long. I knew the panels would be narrow, but that's fine since I use sheers in the dining room as well.
To make the panels, I folded the fabric in half, across it's width of 44". I cut straight up the center making 2 panels. I wanted my panels to be 95" long, so I cut 10" from each panel, leaving 5 inches extra, 2 for the top hem, and 3 for the bottom hem. The fabric had a selvage side, so I only hemmed one side of each panel.
On the top hem (where the curtain clips go, I just folded the fabric over and hemmed.
I hemmed down the side, and the panels were ironed and hung. I think they give just enough color to the dining room, and look nice from the family room.
These are very simple to make, and again, I used what I had on hand. These probably cost around $1.50. So when I'm ready for a change, I don't have any money in these.
