Window Treatments

Is there any good place to find information on making your own window treatments mainly curtains. It seems like they should be relatively easy to make and the prices are through the roof.

You are right. Piece of cake. Simple window treatments are some of the easiest sewing to do. This is because the seams are all straight seams, and the amount of fitting is minimal, compared to say clothing. One key to sucess is to measure carefully (more than once) and press (eg iron) before you sew. This helps everything lie flat. Pick a small window to start if you are sewing for the first time, handling yards and yards of fabric can be hard the first few times you do it.
There are a bunch of books out there. I believe sunset mag has one that is pretty good. You can easily make them at 20-50% of retail cost in a few hours, if you can find a discount fabric place.

You can get patterns at just about any store that sells fabric - check out the "home decor" (or similarly named) section of major pattern books. You can sometimes find patterns at great prices on eBay. Also check your local library for books on sewing for the home.
