I saw these here and had to make them!
I have been wanting a valance over the kitchen sink for a long time and never got around to finding one. But this was the answer!!
You’re supposed to make this using scraps you have laying around, but I didn’t really have any that matched. So I went to Hobby Lobby. I have never had more people ask me what I was doing with the fabric I chose. I got 9 bolts of 1/3 yard each. I cut them in approximately 2.5 inch strips and laid them out in order. I got about 5-6 per bolt. The bolts are about 44 inches, which was perfect for my 38 inch window!
I had plenty left over, if you’re doing this like I did –going to the store- 7 bolts would be plenty. I also made mine thicker than Jillee. It just depends on the look you want to create!
The curtain rod I had was a tension rod, but any will do. You simply fold your strips in half and loop them through around the rod.
UPDATE: I have changed my kitchen colors and stuck with the same plan! Gray, coral and yellow!
