Hankie curtains

I had my shower curtain all laid out when I remembered that I needed to do a valance for the new lilac grey bedroom!  I had a temporary valance before, but it was just pinned to a piece of lace with old jewelry.  It was beautiful that way until it came time to launder, so decided to baste the hankies directly onto my shears.  It was a little tricky because all my hankies are different sizes.  

Used a straight stitch on #5 length.  
 Pulled my favorites for the valance.

Really happy with the final result.  Left some big holes in my first curtain but there are more hankies where these came from!
