After several mistakes, and a couple hours of unpicking....the fixed roman shades are done!
Autumn designed fixed roman shades with mitered square trim for my master bedroom. She had a clever idea to cut up a pair of beige IKEA Merete curtains, to make faux roman shades. They match the merete curtains with trim that I have hanging behind the bed. I never would have thought to cut up a good pair...or two pairs of curtains in this case, to create roman shades. This reminds me again of our mother's words, "measure twice...cut once." It looks like my son's room with smaller windows will soon be getting new roman shades!
I used Google search to find my fixed roman shade inspiration. I came across this great fixed flat roman shade tutorial by Darby: Fly Through My Window, via Centsational Girl's fixed flat roman shade tutorial. Be sure to check out both of the roman shades made by these talented ladies. There's minimal sewing involved, a bonus!
Fabri-Tac is such a great product, it makes my life so much easier.
Can you imagine sewing all the trim on? The glue grabs and bonds quickly too.
There you go! Fixed- flat roman shades, a major hurdle down in the master bedroom!
More to come!
