Project

Valances for the sliding door and two side windows in my living room.

What are you most proud of? The fabric choice and that I was able to do everything on my own ( with the help of the class). What advice would you give someone starting this project? When turning right side out, use a pin to pull the seam out and make it even before ironing. And make sure you mark the top and type of each piece.

Q&A with reneracine

CATHIE Preston asked:
This looks great! Did you do the decoration above the door? I have fabric for my door but haven't started it yet. You have inspired me. Cathie

Thx Cathie! I'm very happy with it. Remember to mark your pieces. the metal decor was purchased at Bealls. Have fun and good luck with it!
