Good morning friends! Today I’m sharing my easy tutorial for our kitchen window valance.
If you follow us on Instagram you’ll know I post a lot of pictures of our kitchen and over the past few weeks I’ve received so many questions about our valance I thought I’d share how I created it (and if you don’t follow us, hop on over to Instagram to follow our day to day life through pretty pictures).
Now, I made this valance before the days of our blog, so this tutorial won’t have step-by-step photos. But I think it’s a simple enough project that they aren’t needed.
I sewed our valance, but you could easily make this a no-sew project by using iron on adhesive instead.
- Material (I used a curtain panel I purchased from Target)
- Sewing machine
- Measure and cut fabric, leaving enough fabric to make 1/2 inch seam on both sides and the bottom of the valance and a 1-2 inch seam on the top.
- Pin 1/2 inch seams on all three sides (sides and bottom), iron and sew.
- Pin a 1-2 inch seam on the top of the valance, iron and sew (this will create the pocket for the curtain rod).
That’s all there is to it. I told you it was easy!
