DIY Ways to Insulate Windows?

Q: I live in a very old house on the water in South Boston that basically has no insulation. Today marks our first real "Fall-ish" feel of a day and now I'm really starting to feel the cold. I'd like to cut down on my heating bills and install some window treatments that will keep the heat in. I found some at Target but each panel was $35 and too expensive. I'm considering finding fabric to make some. Anyone have any suggestions of inexpensive ones to buy or a great DIY method/source?
