MAKING A REMOVABLE VALANCE WITH VELCRO
After making the slipcover, covering my antique chair and poof, I wanted to complete the interior décor with a window treatment including a valance and side panels.
Making a removable valance is not as complicated as a permanent valance, all you need is industrial Velcro, glue and fabric with trim.
1: The first step to making a removable valance is to determine the length and width you want to frame for the valance and section off that part of the ceiling with industrial Velcro (male) with industrial glue (it’s better to use the non stick Velcro for this project and use glue to secure it to the ceiling, the sticky Velcro is not strong enough and the valance will collapse after a few days).
2: Measure fabric and lining to match the frame sectioned off, measure the length of the valance and cut (as seen in diagram).
3: Place lining on fabric and cut to the same measurements
4: Place trim between lining and fabric and stitch
5: Turn over, the finished results should look like the diagram
6: Stitch female side of Velcro on three sided of the valance and mount the valance fastening the Velcro to the ceiling.
For styling I scalloped the front of the valance by forming tiny pleats in the middle or it can be left straight without the scallop.
