Roman Blinds for the New House


Yesterday I finished my first project for the new house. I made the roman shades for our living room windows. I love the way they turned out. I used the tutorial from Jen's What's New blog. The tutorial was wonderful, the only thing I would add to it would be some information on spacing for longer blinds (the tutorial was for much shorter blinds than I was doing). I ended up getting the spacing too close at the top- 3"- and it bunches a little funny. If I make them in the future I will probably keep it at least 4" apart.

The project all laid out- sewing the rings on the back.



The middle blind pulled up, you can kind of see the trim I put at the bottom.

All three blinds pulled up.

Two down, one up- you can really see the fabric here. I was dying to go with a more floral design, but we decided on something less girly (husband's words, not mine). I love the circles and I love all the maroons, greens and golds I can pull out of it to decorate with. I even have a bunch of fabric left over to make pillows with.

A close up of the detail. We think we will eventually make a valance to go over top, but that wont be right away. Off to do some yoga now!

Bravo! They look awesome! I always heard Roman Blinds were hard to make... were they difficult?
