basic machine skills necessary

Beginners Roman blinds

Need to update those windows? Cant find the fabric you like? Why not make your own blinds. Roman blinds are simple and effective and work really well with small windows. This workshop shows you how to make a blind by working on a sample size approx 25cm x 30cm.

You will be shown how to measure, cut and line the blind. Add doweling rods, cord and velcro.

You will then be able to apply this technique to your own blinds at home.

 

Basic sewing machine skills required. If you are unable to use a sewing machine we recommend that you try Angela’s “teach me to sew’ workshop first.
