Hankie Curtains

I've been collecting hankies for a few years now, anytime I go to an estate sale I look for them, I've used a few in my crazy quilting projects and have had a few thoughts about how to use them but never did until yesterday....... I found some wonderful fabric a few weeks ago and wanted to use it in my kitchen for curtains.. well that was great and there is enough for one window but the problem is I have 2 window!!  What to do?????  Alas my hankie stash and a little browsing on the internet and

Tahdah!!!! My Hankie curtains!! This isn't the greatest picture but it really is light and airy looking and will be perfect for my country cottage effect I'm trying to create. I think I need to get a couple more hankies to add to it to make it a little fuller... So what do you think???

Oh pay no attention to plugs etc. we're in the process of remodeling the kitchen and will have a picture soon of a the room done!! Can't wait!


  1. Perfect and so pretty! I think it's fine just the way it is Wendy!

  2. It really is a pretty valance. Even prettier in person :) Another Wendy creation :)
    Still can't wait to see the recycled window project!

  3. Oh show us before and after pictures of the kitchen please I love that. Your hankie curtain is real cute, but I wouldn't add more it looks good, but you live with it so go for it. Good luck on your redo. Hugs, Pearl

  4. OH I really love this look. What a creative idea and your going to smile every time to walk into the kitchen.
    I did not notice the plug until you said something...haha Too busy looking at your wonderful hankies.
    So glad I did not miss this post and that I came by tonight for a visit.

  5. I think it is a great idea,and you dry your eyes after chopping onions. Ha. they look good!
