Re-purposed Curtains

These are the placemats and napkins that I made for my friends. The napkins were made from old curtaining material from 1957 that I bought from the Evandale market.

At the same market I spotted some vintage buttons that I thought would be a good match

The placemats were made from another piece of curtain remanant that I bought from the Op Shop. It's not as old as the first piece but fits nicely with it all the same. I had a lovely afternoon with Mum yesterday as we sat at the table sewing random buttons onto the placemats listening to Vera Lynn


  1. the placemats and napkins they look lovely together and the colours match great

  2. They turned out beautiful. Very creative!

  3. Clever recycling Tanya, they look great, feels great to make something out of "nothing"

  4. These are great! I'm excited that I found your blog!
