Patchwork Rainbow Scarf Curtains

Two pairs of lined curtains with appliqued squares

I had saved up these old scarves from an old project and have had them for YEARS. I didn’t feel bad about cutting up usable scarves – as most of the colours were so bright they would have needed a fashion warning label! That’s probably why they ended up in the charity shops in the first place.

Finally they have found a use and they certainly brighten the place up.

Hello window

Until I put this site together I had no idea that a lot of the things I have made are connected to windows; curtains, blinds, light catchers. The window is a powerful metaphor in fact this site is a small ‘window on waste’ and I look forward to exploring this further.
