You have all been so patient, not that you had a choice, and I have been obnoxiously holding on to these pictures for a couple weeks now, but it is finally time to show you my adorable curtains!
Now, I doubt I'll ever be a seamstress, but I managed to make 4 semi-straight lines 4 times!
Check 'em out!

I spent a lot of time trying to figure out exactly what I wanted, but I'm really glad I chose this option. We have beautiful trim and molding, and I wanted to show that off, so short curtains on tension rods was the best choice for me. (Short curtains were the only option in the kitchen, anyway.)
I had a strip of fabric left, and I'll be using it to make tie-backs, which will only make them cuter (and even more like the curtains I always drew as a kid).
Now, they're not perfect, but with curtains, you can hardly tell. (If you're wondering, I sort of followed this tutorial. I strayed from it in that the store width of the fabric was my curtain length since my windows are only 35" tall. I made my panels about 35" wide by 35" long. This meant that when I sewed the top and bottom parts, I sewed the rod pocket before the bottom part, so that whatever was left could just go to the bottom - if that makes any sense.) And I'm so proud of them!
The best part is I got exactly what I wanted for fairly cheap! The fabric cost me about $17 at Hobby Lobby and the tension rods were $5 for the pair at Big Lots. There's no way I could have found curtains this perfect for our windows anywhere for that price, let alone ones that I love this much!
