We agreed that the fringed end should be turned down to serve as a sort of valance.
I wrapped the hangers with sticky-back velcro, candy-cane style; this keeps the velcro from peeling off as it ages.
The fabric was very fragile, and the fibers wanted to stick and pull every time it came near the velcro. I realized it needed protection and reinforcement. A trip to Joann fabrics turned up perfectly matching quilt-weight cotton, which turned into a sort of underskirt for the flaps.
Self-lined underskirts were put in place, and two rows of velcro sewn on- a row for the hanger top, and one for the back.
A hanger is positioned along the velcro row for the back.;
and the fabric carefully, very carefully squeezed through the opening and pressed into place along the top row of velcro.
The double layered underskirt adds substance and shape to the fringed valance, as well as protects the tapestry from the velcro.
