First time making these and although the measuring is a lengthy process (!) the end result is quite satisfying. I was prepared for my first attempt to be rubbish but now that it worked I have orders for other rooms! The bonus with Roman Blinds versus curtains is that they use less than half the fabric! My childrens bedrooms are small, curtains add more bulk visually and these blinds seem to make it more spacious.
The fabric has been hanging around in my ‘to-do’ pile for some time. An off cut from an old fashioned drapery and furnishing fabric shop in Shepherds Bush Market…. £5!
Curtain fabric, lining, velcro, wooden dowelling rods, nylon cord, screw eyes, preferably plastic rings… (I used small washers!), an acorn cord tidy (which I later affixed) and a cleat.
