Then you have to measure the depth which you desire of the valence on the fabric for curtains. If you got all your measures right fabric will be folded in two pieces. Add 3 inch for hems. Then cut.

Because you have kept the fabric face down you can to measure an inch and a half from every side of material and place pins which are straight throughout the whole length of the material.

Again Stitch with sewing machine then you have to turn the fabric right side out. The hems must face inside then you have to measure 1 inch from deadline that you just sew. The rod will go here.
