No Sew Curtains Part I

I fell in love with these Burlap Curtains that Jen over at Tatertots and Jello made.  She is so talented and I adore her blog.  I set out to use the same color scheme and style since I liked hers so much (clever huh?), but my problem was that I get so much sunlight in these windows that burlap was a just a little too transparent for me.   I decided to line them with the same material that I used to make my PB Pillows.  Doing this allowed me to actually be able to turn the curtains around and show the burlap side or the linen side.  I actually ended up liking the linen side with my kitchen better.
Here is the reverse side (too lazy to climb up and flip the rod around...sorry)

Here is the eat in kitchen.  I did not ruffle mine like Jen did because my material just didn't seem fluid enough to do it.  I tried but mine looked goofy.  I sort of like the simplicity here.

Part II of these curtains will be to make one for this window which is just off of the eat in kitchen area so I'm going to use the same fabrics.  The rod is already on the window so I'm going to use what is there.

These were made simmply with my hot glue gun.  I will post a tutorial on how I make the family room curtain, but for the others I followed Jen's great tutorial.  Thanks Jen!
.........Stay tuned for Part II
