Faux Roman Shade Tutorial

Thanks to everyone who commented on my faux roman shade that I showed you here last week. I felt like some of you were under the illusion that the shade is a functioning blind.  I did say "faux" but I know us blog readers like to scan so maybe you missed it.  


If you still think it's sweet then head over to House of Fifty blog for a tutorial on how I made this. Remember that I said I whipped up 2 in one night.  That is the truth and I have been known to take over a month to complete lined curtains.  Just letting you know so you have an understanding of truly how simple these are.

  11. Saw the tutorial at HOF, great job. LOVE the fabric. My 2nd blind is up. I used a locking pulley system too! Not sure Iike the window without the drapes. Might hang them back up again.

    Now I am going to sew more pillows!

  15. It's really pretty. I could use a faux one in a high window to soften it.

  17. This is SOOO cute! I'm bookmarking that link for when I am brave enough to attempt something like this! I'm still stuck on pillows and haven't graduated from that since I learned to sew six months ago, LOL!

  18. This looks fantastic! I love the fabric. I've made faux 'no-sew' romans, but I'll have to check out the tutorial and see if this is something I can manage.

  19. Fabulous fabric Carol! Most of the time I prefer a faux roman: 1 because I like my blinds/drapes open and 2 because I don't like the look of a roman closed so wouldn't close it anyway :-) I've made a few and they really are easy!

    Thanks for dropping by Edin's House! What kind of ugly-art project do you think you'll take on?

  21. It's hard to find this tutorial with the link you gave (the link heads over to the most recent entry on House of Fifty, and on my browser, the search function at HoF does not work), so I thought I would leave the full link for anyone like me who is trying to track this down: http://houseoffiftyblog.blogspot.com/2011/06/diy-faux-roman-blinds.html
