Okay, and I have to say...I LOVE IT! I really do. It was worth the hassle. At least, I think so.
If you can remember far enough back when I first wrote about this project, I mentioned that I was using pink and white striped Aida, 14 count. The poodle design is my own, and I simply changed the colors and reversed the pattern to get this effect.
Each pennant or flag is edged with pink bias binding, and finished with a large pink pom pom and a small white one.
Because of the way the wooden pelmet is made, there is a little half-size space at each end, so I made little end pieces from the same Aida and trimmed them with the pink pom poms. My dear husband made this wooden pelmet (valance) for me. I love it, and the design of it fits perfectly with my poodle valance. I think they complement each other.
The flag in the middle is a big-head cat pattern I found on Etsy, and I changed the colors to match. It is finally done and I'm really happy with it!
We won't talk about the zillions of stuffed animal sheep and lambs up on top!
