I want to make new summery window toppers for my kitchen. I have new wood rods, so I thought it would look nice with tie-tabs across the top of the curtains. Is twice the width of the window about right for the fabric width? I don't want them too ruffley.
I bought a cute watermelon print for summer. I'm planning to use scraps of a homespun fabric left from my dining room curtains for the tabs. If they turn out nice, I have a pumkin print I'd like to use to make some for fall.
Thanks for any help or new ideas.

Hey Bama. Twice is probably fine. Rule of thumb is 1 1/2 times for heavy fabrics, 2 times for cottons, etc. and 2 1/2-3 times for sheers.
