I needed new curtains for my sliding glass door that goes out to the deck. The curtains lining was falling apart from years of the sun beating on them and our dog Sadie ( a rather large newfoundland) always scratching on them to go in and out especially when she was a puppy. My sister had told me how she made herself curtains using a painters drop cloth. I went to Home Depot to check them out since I wanted something neutral and heavy duty. I found these heavy weight canvas drop cloths for $14.49, It was called a runner. I folded it in half length wise since it was the perfect width for two panels and sewed it together. We have cold winters here so I wanted it to be thicker for insulation to keep the cold out.
