The hardest part, I found, of making the drapes was the hem and sewing a straight line. With a pillow case, it's not such a big deal because as crappy as my sewing a straight line, I still got to turn it inside out and it more or less looked straight as long as you weren't completely incompetent. Basically idiot proof-jackpot.
So I made the pillow case and after getting frustrated trying to learn a slip stitch, or whatever you call it, to close it off and leaving it for a week without so much as a glance, I finally got down to it on Saturday. Also I'd bought a few buttons to attempt making them, thinking it couldn't be as easy as people make it out to be. Turns out-it's even easier. And, while acknowledging how lame it sounds, it's kinda fun to make them too.
Blah, blah, blah here's the finished product:
It's a little loosey-goosey since I'm still learning how to properly measure and properly use seam allowances or hems or whatever you call it.
Also, I still need to work on finishing the seams, but some of this is due to the frustration and doing a hack job on the ends. In the middle is my attempt at that hidden-stitch thingy.
