Cafe Curtains with Swag Valance Cafe curtains are frequently used in kitchen windows, but it can also be used to give two story windows a stylish flair. Mount one drapery rod midpoint from the top window and another just below the ceiling. Choose a rich fabric material like silk dupioni, taffeta or raw silk and hang it from the bottom drapery rod. Allow the drapes to pull to the floor to soften the look. On the top drapery rod, install swag valance in a geometric or floral print making sure that the colors of both the swag fabric and drapery fabric complement one another. Silk and satin swag valance looks the best in such windows and you can trim the valance with tassels and ribbons for a fancier look.
For your curtains to ooze class, select the fabric that you would devote to each room. By this, I mean, that your choice of fabric must correlate with the space you would like to decorate with your homespun curtains. Thus, the way your house is set, must dominate the fabric you pick. The fabric acts as the base binder for your applique patterns. So, would you like to have applique work done, exclusively for the foyer, or intend to add a touch of applique to other spaces as well? In this section, you will read about patterns that work best and look their best, dedicated to each room.
Once you are done with measuring and cutting the fabric, you now need to hem the fabric on all sides. While doing so, make sure that you are leaving inch of hem allowance. Then place the fabric right side down and divide it into four equal and vertical sections. Mark the sections and label the three lines (as A,B,C or 1,2,3, etc.). Again measure the lines and create "x" mark on every 8 inches on each line. Make sure you start from the bottom. Attach the curtain rings on the "x" marks that you created. You can use hand sewing method for doing so. Then, join the loop tape on the shade to the hook tape of the bottom. This will help you to hang the shades. Lastly, place closing hook on each bottom ring of each row. Now, lift the hooks so that they catch the rings next to them. Repeat the same with the rest of the rows of the rings and you are done!
