no sew curtains for my kitchen

Hello,
I kept looking at my old (9 year old) lace kitchen curtains and I don't hate them, but I definitely needed a change. I checked out a bunch of blogs and saw that a lot of you make your own from sheets, so I figured "why not?". So, I went to Gabriel Brothers and found a Queen size flat sheet. I brought it home and luckily it still had all of the creases from being folded so nicely in it's little package. Well, all I did was cut out 4 rectangles along those creases. I bought Stitch Witchery and ironed them. I used some green checked homespun for the tiebacks.
I really like how different they make the room feel. I told my older son that they make the kitchen warmer (meaning the atmosphere is cozy). He replied, "Yeah, it isn't as cold in here anymore." hee hee hee- boys, you gotta love em!!
