Curtains for baby's room

I want to buy some ready made curtains for our DS's room (I'm 35wks preg). I know I should be making them, but I'm pretty rubbish with a needle and thread, don't have a sewing machine and have a couple of weeks left at work. Window is fairly standard sized and already has a blackout blind on it. The rest of the room is pretty plain, so was hoping to make it look a bit more baby-friendly with patterned curtains, maybe a rug and wall stickers. I liked these until I saw the price: www.johnlewis.com/284682/Product.aspx

So, any ideas for places (pref online) which sell cheap but nice children's curtains etc?

I cannot do the link but Dunelm do a lovely dinosaur range in greens and blues for under £30 and they deliver.

eBay? You may be able to get some new ones?

And don't think you 'should' be doing anything - there's a reason why people pay a lot of money for someone else to make curtains; it's not that easy!

Hope you find something you like smile

Ikea have some really fun ones

Jojo maman bebe have some lovely ones. The ones with boats on are lined but not sure if they fit your budget. We're sticking with plain decor too and brightening the room with curtains, rug and light shade.
Have a look at mamas and papas too

Have you 'The Range' near you? We got lovely polka-dot curtains for DD's room from there. Fully lined, reasonably priced and a perfect size for her (very large) windows. Off there tonight for curtains for this DC!

Ooh, thanks guys, loads of great suggestions. I love the Dunelm and Jojo ones. Not sure I can face a trip to Ikea just for this, although they look great and no Range near me (although it looks like they deliver).
And Wing - thanks for the support, I know I don't 'need' to be doing anything, but it's just the kind of thing my mum would say...

Make sure you get blackout lined curtains or you'll have to buy more. My DD will not sleep in her cot during the day of its light!
