simple autumn valence

these little cuties are so simple to whip up!  with cutting, pressing, sewing and hanging it only took about an hour and a half!(and if you don't stop to yack on the phone like i do...you could probably be done in an hour!!)

you'll need:
enough fabric for your window  (i used 2 pieces...15 1/2" x 32" with deb strain's saltbox harvest)
sewing machine
iron/ironing board
thread

cut your pieces, then press 1/4" around all four sides.
stitch around all four sides using 1/8" seam allowance.
fold top piece down 2 1/2", press.
sew along the edge using 1/4" seam allowance.  this will create your rod pocket.
press and hang!
perfect for autumn and thanksgiving!!
