Easy Curtain Panels From Good Will Fabric

When at Good Will, I always go through their packages of fabric remnants.  I recently found two large remnants in a bundle for $2.92.  After I brought the floral furnishings into the family room, I knew I needed to lighten up the panels in the adjoining dining room.  One of the remnants I bought seemed to be what I needed to do this.

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. 

On the bottom hem, I folded the fabric over twice to get a nicer hem.

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.
