Back in October, our landlord outfitted the entire house (our apartment is the 2nd floor of a single family home) with lovely new windows...
When the installation took place, all of the existing window treatments (not-so-lovely white mini-blinds) were removed... and, well - we couldn't bear to put them back.
This weekend, I started (what I'm sure will prove to be) the immense project of making all the window treatments for the whole apartment (!) - In my previous homes, this wouldn't be that much of an endeavor (my last place - a studio loft - only had 3 windows!)... but this place has - count 'em - EIGHTEEN windows! I'm sure I'll be using my copy of Simple Sewing multiple times while working on these!...
These are the first three - in the front sunroom... only 15 to go! Wish me luck!

Jess recognized the fabric right away... I got it at the Schaumburg IKEA. It's not available for purchase online (only $6.99/yd.), but you can view it right here. According to the seams, the designer is Linda Svensson © 2005.
