The easiest way to make an awning for a window is to attach fabric to a 1"x2", add angled sides and a casing at the bottom to run a rod through. Use a rod with a deep projection, at least 8" an that will hold the shape of the awning. You can add a scallopped or shaped bottom below the rod casing if desired.
