crafting curtains

This is the fabric we've chosen for Dulcie's bedroom curtains.  It's so much nicer in real life - really bright and seventies-ish and will look great with her white walls, I think.  I hadn't planned to look for curtain fabric in IKEA, but when I saw this, I knew it was right for the room and bought it immediately.  Hard to believe, I know, but I've never made curtains before, or not from scratch.  These are to be lined and will need to be joined for width too.  Eep.  Monday is the day I have set aside for the making.  I'll have a nice, big, empty room, all clean and newly decorated, to work in.  I'm hoping this will help me to succeed...  [Please don't let me mess them up.]  Having played a relatively minor role in the DIY and decorating, now is my time to shine!  Ha ha!  Wish me luck, please, and all curtain-making tips gratefully received!
