Curtains and Pillows

My latest project was curtains and pillows for my daughter. One of their friends gave them 5 1/2 yards of fabric. How cool is that!!

I got them one of the double rods for sheers and curtains and rings with clips. Since we used the rings with clips, the curtains were only two rectangles lined with tan, light weight curtain lining.
The fabric could have been used on either side and with the scraps I had left, I made two pillows. They were made using both sides of the fabric and some trim from Hobby Lobby. Since I was limited on the fabric, I bought some gold tone corduroy for the back.

While searching for something for the back of the pillows, I came across this red fabric with a touch of gold and thought it would be great for the chair. I used some of the same trim around it that I used between the strips on the other two pillows. The corduroy and red fabric were 30% off at Hobby Lobby and the lady working in the department gave me a 40% coupon to use on the trim.
