Making Curtains.

 This weekend I have been working on what to do about the windows in the van

I wanted something to block off the back of the van from the front so made a privacy curtain to go across.  For this I used one of some blankets that were given to me.  It works good and looks OK.  I still need to put some velcro to close off the sides completely and will eventually make some pockets for it as well.

I've also made a curtain to go on the back window out of the other half of this blanket.  I need to work out how to get it to stay up though as I broke one of the hooks that are there.  Hubby will have an idea otherwise I will need to go buy some more hooks.  Then be more careful!

I am in the process of making some bug curtains.  I need a couple for the front windows, one for the sliding door and I need to work out how to connect the one I have made for the back liftup door. 

 This is the start of the sliding door netting.   I need to decide on a good length for it and somehow weight the bottom so it stays against the van and keeps the bugs out.  It works as it is but needs some of the bottom cut off.

I hope to get them all finished as the goal for March.


  1. I need to talk to my wife(Heidi at Vansteaders), she always finds these great blogs way before I do and never says a word! I like "Wanda", she is very cute!
