Roman Shade Recap

Posted on May 4th, by Amy in sewing, Tutorial. 3 comments

I had a couple of requests for a roman shade tutorial – I’m flattered, but not planning another window treatment anytime soon!  I thought I would instead retrace my steps, of videos and tutorials that I found in my own quest to understand roman shades.

There are lots more videos and information about roman shades on youtube – I encourage you to keep watching until you find what makes it click for you.

Martha also has a tutorial for roman shades that may be helpful.

As I mentioned before I got my hardware on etsy at I Get the Window.  The cord lock includes instructions – just make sure that you follow them, and thread it correctly.  That’s where I had a little trouble…

The wall color is Jamaican Blue by Behr, and we love the bright color!

I hope that this helps some of you wanting to make these window coverings – they make our room cozy and artsy feeling :)


PS – Kathy at Pink Chalk Fabrics is celebrating her second anniversary with a great sale!  And V, is now looking for finished quilts to be donated to families getting back on their feet.

    This is great Amy! I'm in need of a curtain for the window in my family room! We've lived here almost two years without one, hopefully the neighbors don't mind! :) I'd like to share a link to this post on for everyone else in need of a window treatment!
