roman blinds and curtains

Post by daydream97 » Tue Apr 09, 2013 7:50 am

I need to make two 40x210 roman blinds for kids rooms, 150x200roman blind for kitchen and a curtain for the doorway in the kitchen.

I need to make them as warm as possible --

is there any diff between the thermal lining fabrics at spoty?
would it make a diff if I double lined them?
Would adding polar fleece be extra warm for the doorway curtain? Or just make it bulky?

Thinking drill for the 'curtain' part then lining it with thermal lining - cheapest and easiest to get right colours?

Any fab tips for making roman blinds - these will be my first! Lol

Not really nope.

Nope.

Nope and I think it would be too bulky.
Thinking drill for the 'curtain' part then lining it with thermal lining - cheapest and easiest to get right colours?
Probably yeah.

Prewash fabrics first. Make them to go to a couple cm's on the outside of the window frame not the inside, will help insulate better and be a bit more forgiving if you make a mistake with the measurements.
