Enjoy!

Get two tension rods that fit on the inside of your window. Cut a piece of fleece (since it doesn't get ratty and it's a good insulator) to fit plus 4" for casings. Sew casings at either end and place on tension rods. During the day the bottom can be rolled up and the rod placed at the middle or near the top to let light in and rolled down and secured at night.
I thought these would be cute in a snowflake print or something that coordinates with your bedrooms. Mine will be hanging under my mini blinds so everyone outside will be able to see them. Right now I have some blankets thrown over my windows in my bedroom to block light and heat/cold but they are ugly and I can't really roll them up during the day to let light in. They work great, but really aren't all that practical.
I'll make one sometime this weekend and see how it fits. If it's successful I'll post pics and a price list for the materials I use.
