I agree with Don, my first project when I was leaning to sew was to install curtain tracks and then sew up some curtains with blackout fabric on the inside. Pretty straight forward but you get to know the sewing machine. I finished them off by knotting up some monkey fists for tie backs.

I'd suggest using good UV resistant poly thread - wife & I remade full set of curtain on our last boat - lined and everything and they turned out great

Good luck
I found a couple of pics of the curtains on the previous boat - thought I'd post here for info / ideas
