I came across some cool kitchen towels at the Dollar Tree last week.  I added them to my fabric stash and waited patiently for some inspiration. 

I bought the Roman shades at The Christmas Tree Shop for $10 each. I hung them, but I felt that they needed a little something on top.  Then I remembered those towels. I went back to the Dollar Tree and bought the rest. 

I turned them in to a cool valance. I sewed 2 towels together.  Added the ribbon down the center to hide the seam.  I backed them with some fabric from an old tablecloth.  I'm lovin' my new curtains!  I have two towels left.  I might make some pillows.  Not bad for $10 in towels.

Towel curtains???  I would never have guessed.  I had to reread twice to see if I understood.  They came out fantastic. The pattern on them is incredible!!!  The way they match your roman curtains is great.  I love the wood sills.  Incredible job!!!

Those look really nice! I actually bought the same towels.  Cheesy I don't know what I'm doing with them yet but the pattern is awesome.

Wow, I gotta make another trip to the Dollar Store. I usually make purses from dollar store towels, but I haven't seen any that hip yet. Good Job!

Oh yes, and I have to point out the "Christmas Story" leg lamp in the window! HAHA

Great Craftster minds think alike.  Buy now.. Craft later. Smiley

My husband and I made the lamp a few years ago.  I'm going to enter it in next month's Craftster Lighting  Contest.
