She also brought me the curtain from her living room.
She had FOUR layers on her living room window. I only have two rods up on this window. One has lace panels on it, we don't have blinds. I wanted to use the valance with the panels, but with just one rod I had to get creative. I sewed the valance to the top of the panels. They are being held back on metal curtain holders. At night I can let them down.
On this smaller window I used the other valance and to make the panels I sewed the four swag pieces together in two sections of two. They are interesting pieces. Each of these four pieces has a rod pocket at the top and bottom. On her window you put the rod through the top of the piece and then twisted it and put the bottom right next to the top. They also have a shear attachment on the back that is made at an angle and when she put the rod through both pockets the shear part would hang down. She got new curtains because she said these were two complicated to put up every fall and spring when she washed them. I took a lot more time than I expected to alter these. They do look better than what was up there.
Sew Long for Now.
