The New Kitchen Valances

I was so sad to miss my own party on Friday! Blogger wasn’t working on Thursday night or Friday morning, so I wasn’t able to post the linky party. Here’s the project I was planning to share on Friday.

I finally got around to sewing my new valances in the kitchen! I LOVE the way they turned out. I bought the fabric from Calico corners a few months ago. The valances are lined with the cheapest muslin I could find. The tie-ups are made from a few burlap scraps.

There.  The kitchen is done.
Here is another post about the kitchen with before and after photos.

    They look really great, Becca! I used to have an interior design workroom and Calico Corners in Scottsdale, AZ was one of the stores that referred sewing projects to my workroom. I always loved their fabrics. I really like the idea of the burlap for the ties.
