Boutique Craft: Lined Window Valances

Valances are almost a One Size Fits All item- small windows end up with more gathers than large windows - making them a great boutique item.  Simple Lined Valances are quick and easy and can be stitched up by the dozen.  Fat Quarter Lined Valances with embellishments cost more and take a bit more time, but they bring in a much higher dollar at boutiques.  Use your imagination to make them unique, stunning and fun!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Our project is done in pink to show our appreciation for all the wonderful work done by the American Cancer Society towards finding a cure.  Please give your family the best gift possible for Christmas this year...a healthy you.  Take care of yourself by getting the dreaded yearly mammograms, eating right and living life to the fullest.  Visit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure website for more information on breast cancer, getting involved and donations to help.

  2. I just made similar valances for a friend last weekend. They are a really easy project for beginners. I mainly do sewing for home decor projects.

    I haven't tried quilting yet. My sister just won a national quilting competition for one of her designs. I know from her that quilting is a real labor of love. She said she'd never sell her quilts. Usually she puts about 1,000 hours in for each one. Is that typical?
