Uses for Fabric From Old Curtains

After removing blue and white checked curtains and shades in my kitchen and laundry room and replacing them with blinds, I snipped the curtains in two to make valances and used the remainder of the fabric to make quilted place mats, oven mitts, and pot holders. I even used the material to line a picnic basket, which had a ruffle hanging out beneath the lid. I still have fabric left.
