Last time I made new curtains for my kitchen.  I had a terrible time deciding on what fabric to use.  This window doesn't have blinds, so, I wanted a fabric that would not fade too badly.  I thought of using 1/4" green gingham checked fabric. Since I'm not overly fond of gingham checked fabric, I kept looking but I always came back to the green gingham check fabric.  It is a woven cloth which means that the threads are woven instead of being dyed or printed.  If you look on the back side of the fabric, you can see the difference. A woven fabric will look the same on both sides, a printed fabric will be colorful on the right side but faded on the wrong side.

I made the curtains above for my son's room.  The picture on the right is a close up of the valance.  When I got ready to make the valance, I found myself short on fabric.  Instead of a full valance, I had to make it much narrow than I meant to. I really liked the way it turned out and that's all that's important. That's the good thing about being able to sew -- you can improvise when you have to.


Here's a valance I made for my "sewing room".  I stuffed it with plastic grocery bags to make it "poof". This could also be used as a topper over mini blinds.

Here's a picture of two tool pouches I made for my son.  I had made two tool pouches for my husband years ago.  I never dreamed twenty years later my son would want some  just like Dad's.   They are made from heavy denim.  I used upholstery thread for more durability.  I made them so they roll up for compact storage in his tool box.
