This is what I want to make for my kitchen/dining window treatments. These are called Butterfly Swags! Envision the main fabric itself done in a burlap with contrasting bands done in grosgrain ribbon....a fixed window treatment that does not need to be adjusted. I would include either pleated shades or mini blinds beneath the panels. A bit casual but different!

Cup Half Full: DIY Roman Shade Just fabric rings and string no mini blind. She also lined them, gave them weight at the bottom and mounted them above the windwo to give more height. ... love!
