A couple days ago, on facebook, I asked whether to turn a cute set of curtains into pillows or bags. I liked the idea of shoulder bags but I knew pillows would be easier. I got out the sewing machine and started on pillows. I had enough panels to make three pillows. I had valances (that oddly were a different color than the panels) so I went ahead and added them to some plain bags I had. I wanted a longer strap so I used the curtain rod pocket from the valances as the strap. If these bags don't sell at either upcoming show Tonie and I will use them when we go to the antique show in Portland at EXPO.
