The most important component is the screen material. Mom’s old bed-sheet just isn’t good enough (and is actually quite nast). Most fabric stores carry rolls of material called curtain backing or black-out cloth. It’s a light, opaque white material used to make curtains actually block light. Made from cotton and polyester, one side looks like woven cotton while the other looks like it’s plastic coated. At local fabric store it was about $5 per yard and 54-inches wide. When buying your fabric, we suggest buying at least 4-inches wider and longer than your planned screen dimensions to allow room for construction.
