1/2 yard accent fabric
1 1/2 yds for the panel(you will have left overs, but its better to have too much than not enough...right?!)
*cut two accent pieces 6" x the width of your window plus 1/2"(mine are 27", so i cut a 6x 271/2 piece)
*cut two panels 20" x your window width(don't forget your extra 1/2 inch!)
*cut two pieces of ric rac that equal your window width...leave a little over hang.
now lets start sewing!
lay panel right side up and pin ric rac in place, lining it up with the edge. then pin accent piece right side down-to create your "sandwich".
next, press in the edges 1/4" on all four sides. then sew all the way around using aprox. 1/8" seam allowance.
press to get out any wrinkles.
now hang! cut ribbon long enough to make a nice tie. then tie your curtains up, fluff, and enjoy!!
(and yes, i know my windows need to be washed...this photo made that abundantly clear!!...its on my "to do" list today!!)
