No sew roman shade, I've been looking for a long time for a no sew shade that isn't a faux shade, this is it! Taking this idea and combining it with another blogs suggestion to use a table cloth to save on fabric cost.
Pleated Valance It serves the function of a valance but has the pleated look of a Roman shade. To make this window treatment, back a rectangle of the drapery fabric with a light-blocking fabric using fusible web (to prevent light-emitting needle holes). Iron in deep pleats and starch heavily. Stitch pleats into place and glue a grosgrain ribbon down the middle. Tie the ribbon in a loose bow at the bottom.
