Thrift Store - Bought Coasters/Matts to turn into WIDOW SHADES

Hello Everyone!
Hope all is well.
Welcome to my mini blog!

Have you any Coasters - yes sir, yes sir.
I have 4 of them! 

On one of my jaunts out
this week I found these little coasters.
These little coasters or matts are the correct
length for the dollhouse windows. 

You say - you do not want Patriotic
shades - no problem.
The red, white and blue yarn can easily
be pulled away from the reeds.
You can weave other colors of yarn in its place.

 They would be very easy to attach to the windows.
You could sew little jump rings onto the
backside of the matt to the blue yarns.
Use a small wire, round dowel or cut a
clothes hanger to go thru the rings.
Then hang to the window with tacky wax or eye

 Here, the little matt is already rolled up in the front.
Can you see it?
I would like a patriotic room-box or a room done up
in reds.
Perhaps these would look good in a library?
They would/could add some much
needed color to your room.
Thanks for stopping by!

  9. The shades are interesting, they would work well as sun shades on a porch, would look great with a swing with red, white and blue pillows.

    If you need more room on your side bar, you may want to change your setting for how many items show in your Mini Blog List. You will still be able to open to the full list. I hope this works for you.
