What a deal! I've got little pieces of lace and stuff I really need a special place for ,so that gives me a idea!Thanks for sharing!

Re: Just an old window and old linens.

Hi Luann, I cut the pieces the size of the opening of each pane,and used a heavy cardboard cut a tiny bit smaller to the size of panes then adhered the fabric pieces to the cardboard,and snugged it in the openings. I used a dab of adhesive on the back to hold it all in .Thank you for taking the time to look !Rose
