A little plaid… Part 8 (driver’s side curtains)

During a lovely, sunny 70 degree December day a little while ago, I did what any sane person might when the weather turns nice – drove my bus!  Having no place to go in particular, I decided to drive 20 miles west to a small town and fill up the gas tank; thereby keeping the trip short so I could be home for the school bus.  Upon returning an hour later, I found myself still not quite ready to put Moby back in the garage and still had a little time to waste before the school bus came.  When looking around the back area, I found the four remaining curtains awaiting installation – perfect!  Fifteen minutes later (including a few minutes to fix two I installed backwards) they were in and ready for use.  The final curtain, the one behind the closet, will wait until I take her off the road for some winter projects which also require removal of the closet.

These curtains, like the two for the hatch, have snaps sewn in to keep them closed when drawn.  I cannot emphasize how helpful the pattern was for aligning these snaps or for hemming.  Just remember to sew them on opposite sides for each curtain and to install each curtain so the snaps face each other.

Inside view.  There was too much reflection for an outside shot.  One note when installing these (and rear hatch curtains):  you need to pay attention to the snaps sewn into the hem.  I almost installed them backwards which prevents snapping them closed when drawn
