Transforming curtains into valances!

Stacie has been looking for fabric to make new valances for her kitchen for months! She happened to be in her local Walmart looking for kids bedroom curtains when she stumbled on some great patterned curtains, but they didn't make them in a valance. They were what she had been looking for in color and style and the price was right! She decided to buy the curtains and transform them into window valances. With some sewing help from her mom, they created a new look for the kitchen!

This is what they started out like...pretty, but not fitting for a bay window!

So, with a little cutting, hemming and sewing they were able to finish the project in just a couple hours!

They decided to line the fabric with a thin cotton, so they could fold the fabric in half to make the measuring easier. The lining made it so you wouldn't see the pattern through it when the light came through. They turned out really nice and the ladies were pleased with their work! the whole project cost $60.00 for a total of 5 windows! Not bad! Here is the final result!

Thanks! Enjoy!
