Hanging around

For quite a while now, my kitchen window has been bare except for the dirty old blinds. I used to have a spider plant hanging in front of it, until the leaves hung so long they were actually hitting my head.

Then I found this fabric. Used for a towel
and a centerpiece
. What would tie the room together - a rug? No. A valence? Yes.



I measured the width of the window and added and inch to each side. I folded the sides over, hiding the bare edges, and stitched. I then made an inch hem at the bottom, and a 1 1/2" opening at the top for the curtain rod. And voila, less than an hour later, my window is dressed and ready to go!

  1. Found you from Skip to My Lou. My friend is in LOVE with that fabric too-we are trying to find some of it. Do you know the name or where you got it from?? Thanks!

  2. I don't know the name of it, but I had picked it up from JoAnn's. I've seen lots of other people online using it as well. We all have good taste :)
