I need "cafe curtains" for my kitchen windows.

(Pardon the mess, please)

When we first moved in there were curtains and the first thing I did (literally) was take down the ugly, faded, stained, flowered-y panels of ancient fabric. Now I can not find any that will fit. I found a fabric I like in the Ikea catalog:

But we don't have an Ikea anywhere near us. And shipping is astronomical. I have checked all the fabric stores around here and I can't find anything I like. Plus, buying fabric would involve me sewing, which I have not done in about 10 years. I have a sewing machine. My mom bought me a lovely white Singer for Christmas two years ago, but I tend to make excuses and I never learned to use the silly thing. I want them to be nice from outside, as well, so they would need to be double-faced. The windows are an awkward size, 21"L x 27"H and I would want two 15" panels per window(there are 5 windows). Does anyone know someone who can make me curtains? Preferably someone near an Ikea who is willing to take a custom order?
