I went to Jo-Anns and found some quilting material (the print is so fun! it has blue, dark pink, light pink, orange, green, brown ... just perfect for our color scheme), light blocking material (in the upholstery section) and used some blue broadcloth scraps for the tabs.
I made a very basic curtain. I cut the light blocking material in half to fit both sides of the window and ironed and hemmed the print fabric right around it. Then I made the tabs.
Now, I need your help. How should I finish them?? (See last picture.)

|I sewed a straight seam down each tab.|
|Turned them inside out, and ironed the seam in the middle.|
|I folded each in half, ironed it, then folded each unfinished end up and ironed them.|
|Then I sewed the tabs onto the curtain tops, stitching a box and an "X" to make them sturdy.|
|The ends remain unfinished. Should I just hem them? Ruffles? What's your vision?|
