    Some re-sale/thrift shops have patterns .... McCall, Butterick, Simplicity, etc.
    or if you are fairly good at math, just measure window you want to cover,
    buy needed fabric, hem at top and bottom, and you have curtains. Very
    easy.

    McCalls patterns can be bought online and they are cheaper than getting them in the store.

    You need 1 1/2 times the width of the window total. Measurement X 1.5 divided by 2 and add an inch for side hems. For the length measurement plus 4 inches for bottom hem and 4 inches for top hem and header. The header is the little bit that sticks above the curtain rod.

    Yes, like this. It works great. I did curtains for my son's room like that and added a valance on top of it. I love how it looks.

    i think fullness depends on what you like...I like full curtains and generally go at least 2 - 2 1/2 times the width of the window depending on the heaviness of the fabric.

    I get patterns when they are on sale at Joann's for either .99 cents or $1.99. Simplicity Patterns are on sale today through the 13th, 5 for $5.00. The curtian patterns are in the back of the catalog.
