"No Sew" Christmas Window Topper

This year, as I was putting up my kitchen Christmas decorations, I decided I needed a red curtain topper for the window above my sink. After looking all over town (in other words I'd looked at Wal-Mart and Target!) I hadn't found a thing. So, I thought I'd see what I could do on my own - without spending too much time, too much money or too much energy. And without sitting down at a sewing machine - which I haven't done in going on 18 years...

My answer - "stitch witchery"!

I used my blue gingham summer valance as a pattern,
and created "seams" with the stitch witchery.
I now present… Christmas kitchen window! Love it!
Total cost - $4.10

fabric $2.81 - 1 1/2 yards fabric @ $1.87/yd
stitch witchery $1.29 - 20 yards Prym Sewing Regular Weight (used about 7 yards)

And no, it's not the camera angle - it really is a bit crooked.

But, for a first attempt at something I am not very talented at...
I am quite pleased! :-)
