Curtains for Mimi's Room

Mimi's room is still far from finished. Right now she's sleeping in our portable crib until I muster up the courage to move E to a twin bed (He still takes a 2-or-3 hour nap and I'm scare that he'll give it up once he's out of his crib). But while the finishing touches will need to wait for a while I'm slowing putting things together. My next project will be sewing some curtains.

The last time I was out IKEA some of the fabric caught my eye. These are two of my favorites. Which ever fabric I use I want to try and do some pinch pleats along the top.

Has anyone ever used pleat tape to sew curtains? If so, any tips?
