Simple DIY Valance

Steel has a Disney Cars Room that was in need of a window treatment...

Found some great fabric at the fabric store, Steel picked it out...

How I Did It
1.  I bought one yard and kept that as the width and cut it as 20 inches in length.

2.  I folded and pinned the bottom hem (36 inches).  I made sure that my pattern on the reverse would be in the correct direction when hung.

3.  I, then, folded and pinned both sides (20 inches).

 4.  I angled the corners and pinned so that the corners would lay flat.

5.  I folded the remaining edge (top) down 3 1/2 inches.  I stitched one line across at 1 1/2 inches down and  one at 3 inches. The top pocket is the top 'decoration' and the second is where the curtain rod is slipped in.

Ready for hanging...

And hung...

Can't get any easier than that!
