I'm Making Curtains

Hello Everyone,

This weekend I made curtains for our dining room. I have been wanting to make curtains for our quarters ever since we moved here in April. Well, after finally picking out the fabric online, ordering it and then waiting for it to be delivered from the States to Germany takes a "little bit of time."

Here is the fabric I selected for the dining room. I ordered it from Joann's and it is called "Tropix Wexford Fresco Goldenrod." I love how bright and cheery it is. We are not  painting our quarters, so I am using fabric to pop color into every room.

We have an open floor plan and I ordered extra fabric to tie in the living room,  but, I didn't order the correct amount. So, I will be placing another order for fabric for curtains for the living room. I also lined them with Roc-Lon Budget Blackout Fabric that I order also from Joann's.

These are the windows they were supposed to be on:
The reason these are not hanging up right now is because in our quarters we are not allowed to have curtain rods. The curtains I made has a 3" rod pocket, because these will be used when we move back to our forever home after our assignment here is complete. The system installed and used in these quarters has these plastic clips that are on a track. Well, the curtains are too heavy (especially with the liner).

I am heading out tomorrow to go look for metal clips that will be strong enough to hold the curtains up and that will slide into the track. Wish me luck!!

Stay tuned!!
