    Cuff top valance pattern

    Looking for a FREE pattern or advice ,direction on how to sew these valances. I found one pattern for $29.95, and that's toooo much for me! I found FREE directions on e-how, which is NOT exactly what I was looking for. Can any one help me?

    Do you have a JAF nearby? I would look at the patterns because on big sale day, they use to have the pattern on sale for 99 cents or $1.99. If you found a pattern you like, take the instructions out and read them to see if that is enough information to get you started. Just put the instructions back in as neat as it was and return the pattern to the proper place in the drawer.

    I have Simplicity pattern number 8401 that has never been used. It has patterns for 6 different styles of curtains. You can see the pictures on the cover of the envelope if you Google "Simplicity 8401. If you like what you see, send me a PM and we'll see if we can't work something out.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Here's a pic.

    I'd like to do burlap with a homespun cuff.

    If you were to lay that out flat, it would be straight across the bottom, and left and right sides would be right angles to it. The top would be a wave cut (think wavy edge on the outside of a quilt) just much deeper. You want your valance to be twice the width of the window. Make your valance so it is two sided, (remember to leave an opening to turn it right side out), so that when you fold the top down, you will see the homespun. Use curtain clips to hang it. If I can be of further help, just PM me with your window width and length measurements, and I can make you a pattern out of newsprint if you need it. Since seams are harder to unstitch in burlap, you might want to try one made of something like an inexpensive broadcloth first. I do hope this is clear. Good luck with your project.
    If you always do, what you have always done, The results never change. Change is the wings you give yourself.
