I recently picked up a colorful table runner at Target to match my existing placemats. I decided it would make an excellent valance for my window treatments. This is also my first attempt at sewing sheer curtains (not easy!) I discovered that using a smaller stitch reduces puckering. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the seams aren't finished on the sheer curtain. I just cut them as clean as I could and called it a day. Comments welcome!
