Window Valance

I'm really not a seamstress. That's not one of my strong suits. (And as you can see I'm not a photographer either!)  However, every once in awhile, I get the urge to sit down and sew. Because I know where my weaknesses lie, I usually choose projects that are not too complicated. Straight lines and a little bit of pressing, I can do that. This was one of my latest projects—a valance for my family room doors.

And then with some of the leftover material I recovered an ottoman top that was torn. 
MATERIALS:  Fabric, thread & trim
PATTERN:  Simplicity pattern 4656 

I chose a colorful fabric that matched my room (I love color) and just a cream lining.  I didn't want it to compete with the color in the valance.  Then I pulled a color from the fabric for the trim.
