What to do with a Waverly Valance

AGAIN - I WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME
MY NEW FOLLOWERS. IT IS A PLEASURE
FOR YOU TO JOIN ME.

I am not a stranger to buying curtains, valances or
shades at a Charity Store. In fact I love these
types of stores. And in todays economy you
need to get a bargain for your money.
And I will also buy it even if it has holes.
In fact  where there are holes in them then
I am more apt to cut it up! And I have been
cutting these things up ever since the first
day that I was married. It was my calling!
Nothing was safe around me except for
the 1970's polyester. I despised that rough
cold material. Anyway if you need or want
large amounts of cloth at a good price then
this is the way to go.
All you have to do is wash the stuff up and use it.
Sometime ago I came across a very long panel of some
beautiful Waverly valances. So sorry that I forgot
to take pics of the pretty thing.  Anyway Pep had
some sofa pillows that needed recovering and
so the valance fitted right in with her color scheme.
Did I forget to mention that the Valance was lined!
And also that the pretty red buttons were attached.
That sure was a nice bonus!
Hardly any work here!
The same design is on both sides of each pillow.
Anyway my grandaughter Elise has been
spending a lot of time with me in my sewing
room and she helped me tremendously with the
making of these pillows. (I love teaching her).
 Can you see the lining?
I wanted a different kind of a pillow so at the top
all we did was attach cotton strips and tie them up.
Nothing frilly - no bows just knots.
Each pillow is encased in a zippered
cotton pillow cover that we cut down from
some extra bed pillow covers that I owned.
Thank you Elise for your help!
Thanks for visiting me.
Many hugs and kisses to you all,
Hopblogger
