Simple Swags:Scarf, slung fabric strip, unlined or lined, draped over a decorative rod or wound over a tieback at each top corner of a window frame.The middle of the fabric strip acts as a valance; the ends, whether cut into opposing diagonals or simply hemmed, softly hang down the sides of the window. It's most appropriate used alone on windows where privacy is not an issue.
Rows of ball fringe give this cornice a look so soft you just want to run your fingers over it. To unite the drapery and cornice, topstitch ball fringe to the inner edge of the drapery panels and the lower edge of the tiebacks. Continue in this manner, packing the fringe tightly so the balls form a chenille-like surface. Note: The cornice shown used approximately 35 yards of ball fringe.
