Lacroix blinds!

Well, Lacroix fabric at least! I made these Roman blinds for the kitchen after spotting this uber amazing fabric in a charity shop! It had previously been used but can’t have been hanging for very long as the fabric was in great condition and is still available to buy new for £85 per metre! It certainly is a conversation starter! I’ve made a few of these now so I’m getting a lot of practice. I posted some instructions on my blog some time ago. You can find them here if you’d like to have a go yourself.

Material Notes

curtain fabric, lining fabric, wooden dowels, plastic rings, nylon cord, screw eyes, cleat, acorn, velcro
