VIEW A: The Lace Appliqué Valance is made from solid fabric or tone-on-tone fabric that can be railroaded (placed on its side) to speed up the sewing process. Lace appliques made from by-theyard lace or your grandmother’s vintage doilies are applied to the valance for a one-of-a-kind look. The valance gently curves up to a center depth of 16” (41cm) and the sides are 21” (54cm) long. Kick pleats provide dimension at both ends and contrast piping adds flair at the top and bottom edges of the valance. Mounting is simple, valance is easily attached to a 1” X 4” (2.5cm X 10cm) pine board using a staple gun. Valance can made for windows 28” to 52” wide (71-132cm).
VIEW B: The Faux Leather Topper and Roll-Up Shade features minimal sewing! Shade is unlined with fringed side edges. The bottom of the shade has a rod pocket for a wood dowel that enables the shade to roll up. Faux leather ties hold the shade in place and can be moved to the side to let the shade down. The Faux Leather Topper and shade ties require no sewing – the cut edges are the finished edges. The Topper is 9” (23cm) deep in the center and 13-1/2” (34.5) long at the side edges. Both shade and topper are easily attached to a 1” X 3” (2.5cm X 7.5cm) pine board using a staple gun. Your fabric width determines the width of the shade and topper you can make as there is no seaming – see Fabric Requirement Chart for size range.
VIEW C: The Flower Valance features flowers, leaves and button embellishments attached to a valance with a center trumpet and side cascades. A contrast band highlights the bottom edge and a piping strip completes the look along the top edge. The valance is 17” (43cm) deep with 30” (76cm) side cascades. Mounting is simple; valance is easily attached to a 1” X 4” (2.5cm X 10cm) pine board using a staple gun. Valance can made for windows 28” to 44” wide (71-112cm).
