    Ok, now, I know this is not everyone's taste. The idea behind these curtains is a "sewing room". When you walk into your sewing room, you see all different colors and patterns, and that is what I wanted these curtains to emulate. Not matchy matchy to the decor, but theme fitting with the room's use. :)

    They look great. It's your room, do as you please. Looks really nice with the different colors.

    Personally, I like them! Love green and purple and the proportions you chose is great.

    DH says the ones I made above my sewing machine (and the one I made for the knee-hole space below my machine, to hide the stuff I have stored down there) look like they belong in Africa.

    I like them....and have you thought about putting a pair of tie-backs on the sides? They would really look cool with each side tied back.

    actually, the fabrics are all the same width and length. i pleated the tops, and made them wide enough so that they would gather and scrunch on the rod.. (last minute decision... idea just popped in my head and i love the effect). i backed them with a sheet from walmart, and they are luxuriously heavy and sun blocking. if i were to buy them, i wouldn't mind paying $60 and upwards. :) Thanks for all of your comments.

    i had planned on making tiebacks, but by experimenting, i found that i liked the line up of proportions when pushed all the way open to the sides. i was afraid the i would lose the whole effect by interrupting the flow of prints. :)

    Great look for a sewing room! I used to have just toppers-took those down after 10 years to have just mini blinds. Now the color in my sewing room comes from scraps and fabrics lying around everywhere :)

    Looks great to me and if you are happy with them, then I say that is most important.

    This is a good way to hide your stash too! Think of the possibilities!
