    Several folks right here on Hometalk, including myself, have used drop cloths (look around because prices vary). Part of it depends on how much material you need and sheets are also a good option. You can get sheets pretty cheap from thrift stores or even Wal-Mart. Of course, you may also be able to find actual curtains at thrift stores.

    Use bed Sheets and use brass rings to clip onto the hem! cost is minimal. I've made many curtains using this methods . Also can use bath & beach towels , works great . The clips can be purchased @ a fabric store in the notion section.. no sewing...

    For a valance curtain, I used a pillow case I had on hand. I split the side seam, had the bottom edge was already hemmed. The unfinished side seam I just stapled over for the curtain rod. For larger windows, I have used flat sheets. Just fold over the top and pin. I have also used fabric shower curtains. I hawve gone to Savers and Goodwill to find them.
