This Idea Thief is a super easy idea for curtains. They are "pin-up" curtains. As far as I can tell, they remind me of roman shades, but are much easier for the non-sewer. You could easily use hemming tape and then hand stitch the hook and eyes. You don't have to worry about loops on the back and pull strings. Plus, if you have little ones, they are much safer since they don't have pull strings (which are a strangulation risk).
