This tip I learned years ago from a friend. Normally if you buy themed bedding they offer curtains to match the quilt and sheets. For some reason the curtains always seem to be pretty expensive for what you get and I never used to order them because they didn't seem worth the expense.

My friend told me to order an extra matching sheet (or pair if need be) instead then simply cut it to size and hem it to make your own curtains.

Voila, a very easy and simple way to get matching curtains at a fraction of the price of pre-made ones.

That's a good idea but I think it's better to go with a solid color that coordinates with the current design elements. Good quality draperies that will last for years is a better investment. For example, if you kids like sponge bob, get blue drapes, when they grow out of them you don't have to buy new ones, just get blue sheets! Check out
