What materials did you use? Several different fabrics-ranging from home decor fabric samples I got for free from a shop cleaning out their inventory to home decor fabrics left over from making the living room pillows to duck cloth left over from some Christmas projects, white poly serger thread, serger, blue-green poly thread, standard machine, store bought curtains for liners, bias tape for tabs

What are you most proud of? I love how the "fabric" turned out, but I think I could've done a little better job on the curtain part. When I got to that point, I was just ready to be done and could've taken a little more time to make them look a little more professional. I also thought my idea to iron them with the hair straightener was GENIUS!!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes forever. Seriously, do not underestimate the time you will spend on this project. It's worth it, but it will consume your life for awhile! Also, make sure you have a space big enough to spread out the curtain panels as you work- when I was deciding the combination of strips for each panel, I took everything up to my church where I could spread out all 4 at once!

They're fantastic! Wow- what a lot of work! I had to laugh about you using the hair straightener to iron out the seams- I've totally ironed shirt collars that way before when I was in a rush! :)
