Owl Nursery Valance Curtain Tutorial

Owl Nursery Valance Curtain Tutorial

The retro owl fabric was the inspiration for Emma's owl themed nursery. But it was actually a bit more tricky than I expected to incorporate it into the room. I used it to make a quilt and a trash can liner/wetbag. And here is one more way: a window valance.

Step 1) Decide on the length and width of the fabric (both the brown and the owl)

Step 2) Hem all four sides of your fabric (both brown and owl)

Step 3) Create fabric loops for hanging. Cut 8-10 strips 2.5" x 7" (both brown and owl) and hem the long sides.

You'll want more loops if you are covering a wider window than mine and potentially less if your window is smaller than mine.

Step 4) Line up the top of both fabrics and decide where your loops will go. Pin in place and sew a hem to attach. I staggered mine so that it's brown loop, owl loop, brown loop, etc.

Step 5) Hang and enjoy!
