For really frugal and warm curtains, I purchased two of those fleece throws that are on sale for under $5 and used the inexpensive gold clips. The two throws fit a 76 inch picture window nicely, and they come in dark colors also nice for wintertime. Mine came with a nice cloth bow tied around it which I used for tiebacks.

I actually forgot to add to my previous post that I can also use this idea to make my patio glass door curtains heavier for both the winter and the summer. I will either sew or use some fabric glue to attach the fleece blanket to the top below the hanging tabs. I could have used this idea this summer when it was so hot next to the patio glass doors.

Last winter after being cold from our single pane sliding glass door and not having the money to replace it, we bought a large piece of polar fleece to cover the window.
If you have decorated your child's room with the latest cartoon characters and those light weight curtains just don't cut it in the winter, why not make some out of Polar Fleece?
