Here’s a GREAT ‘how to’ video on how to make your own Roman Shade without any sewing:
The fabric and glue for this shade can be bought at a fabric store such as Hobby Lobby or Joann. The mechanical parts such as Cord Locks, and the Cord Idlers, can be purchased at Fix My Blinds.
We highly recommend using polyester String that is made for blinds and shades, also sold at Fix My Blinds.
The string diameter that is commonly used for a shade like this will be 1.8MM – 2.2MM.
As you can see, making your own shades can not only be fun, but a GREAT way to give a room a custom look!!
