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.
