New Kitchen Valance

I was sewing something totally different (a project that I will share later) and decided to make a new kitchen valance.
I had part of a white cheap sheet in my fabric stash (I think it was left over from making a valance for my niece’s house).   I sewed it up in less than 30 minutes, including sewing on the two rows of ribbon.
I scored this neat looking ribbon from Hobby Lobby on clearance. It was $1.99 for 10 yards and it has a Pennsylvania Dutch flavor to it which I love.  So, this is what I ended up with. 
It is a tad puckery from where I sewed on the ribbon, but I am hoping that it diminishes the longer it hangs there.  A girl can hope, huh?

I am linking up to the parties here

Ellen, your kitchen valance is beautiful! I love the crisp white offset by the blue ribbon. It evokes memories of the blue and white architecture in Santorini, Greece!

Thank you so much for being a part of "A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday at Rook No. 17!
