My valence was 42″ long by 12″ wide, but you can really use almost any dimensions you like. My finished pillow was 21″ by 12″ (half as wide as the fabric I started with and the same height).
To get started, press your valence (or dish towel, or hemmed fabric), then fold it in half longways, right sides facing out (like in the photo), press again, and pin. Grab some thread and head to the machine, because you’re ready to start sewing!
