Scalloped Valances on Vintage Trailer Awnings

The scalloped valances, on some vintage trailer awnings I have seen, appear to be cut out randomly rather than following the design and pattern repeat of the stripes in the fabric. Over the years, I have saved some of the custom cut patterns used when designing the scalloped edge of my awning valances. When customers request a fabric sample, sometimes I  will send an example of what the scalloped valance edge will look like on their specific fabric choice. The valances on an awning create an important visual aspect,  representative of the entire vintage trailer awning's appearance, so special attention is given when cutting out the scallops to compliment the design of the fabric. I pay particular attention to this important detail for the most appealing outcome.
