So, when the Sausage Boy was born, I made a valance for his window out of some cute fabric I had leftover from another project. Then we moved and he had two big windows. Well I broke down and bought curtains, cause I wanted them lined (his window faces bright sunlight) but...I couldn't just leave them plain. I decided to rip out the valance and cobble together some cute tie backs for the new curtains. I added large grommets on the ends to hook over a metal hook I screwed in to the wall. They are doubled sided with a contrasting fabric on the backside, but really it was just two seams and then two hems for each one.
