I finally figured out how to and got around to sewing my new front and rear curtains. There are two separate tubes across the top for the curtain rod. There is a dowel in the inside on the bottom edge. They are lined on the back with a heavy dark green fleece (this prevents light coming in or out, and also does not wick any moisture that gets on the windows). When I want them up, I just roll them and tie on the curtain rod.

This is a good idea.

I did this myself with some vinyl material.

but.... I also just did take it down. I found that the rolling up part was not as simple as it seems initially, when you actually have to reach over things and roll. It's a two hand job for sure.

I went a little more traditional as far as mechanics, but not in materials.

I'd tell ya, but it was not my idea, I stole it from Lizbeth. SHE can have the glory unvailing it!

Nice curtain idea! I am in the process of searching for material to make curtains for our first outing in our Trill (Memorial Day weekend).

So, Lizbeth, please share your idea quickly!

Ok, ok!

Rugs from Ikea. Like these;

Hung on the rods with these;*15828*15846

All the rugs (7) cost a total of 14 bucks, the hanging rings were 16. I cut off the fringe and turned the edges over to form a side hem and hung'em up. Kind of has a saddle blanket look. I also purchase a couple of a different color pattern to use on the floor. I might go back and get more for seat throws. I'm rug happy!

VERY clever. What a great idea. They look good.

I'm just doing the typical rod-pocket curtains- but I'm lining them with mylar, for UV it fits in with my space theme!!!
