Fake Roman Blind How To:

I've finally done what I said I would do (last week) . . . I've finished my Fake Roman Blind Tutorial! yay!

Here goes nothing:
So if you take a long piece of fabric and hem the edges that's your start!! You could also use a pre made table runner if you found one the right width. If your fabric is thick (like a table runner) then you're done. If it's thin, like mine was (like quilting fabric), then you might want to line the back with some iron on interfacing!
Then you start pinching. Basically you make big loops, pinch them together and sew! Super simple! Just make sure that Each loop drops down low enough to cover the stitches of the loop below it!

For the top we attached the velcro, then made a slightly larger loop.  Of Coarse still making sure that the loop was long enough to cover the next loops stitches! 
 And lastly,
To hold the other side of the velcro on the window, we used Command Adhesive Strips!! They work great!
 Hope that Helps anyone wanting to make one for themselves!
&
Hope you have a great weekend!

  10. Due to the fact that I don't have a sewing machine, nor can I sew, may I ask you to make one of those for me? I'll bring the material when I see you. I owe ya!! Did you go to the market?

  11. If only I could sew something (anything). Love your new blind and hand model.

    Would you mind sharing the brand of your trash can near the toilet? I need a small one for our bathroom.

  12. Love it! And exactly what i needed :-) I need to make two for my kitchen - my question is how did you use the command strips to stick the velcro to the wall - how many strips did you need to use (i'm assuming you used the big ones?) Thanks Gx
