Roman blindsIf you love your windows and want to make them look decorative and pretty then the best way to achieve the desired look is by using roman blinds. They gel perfectly with any type of room d├ęcor and are refreshing for the eyes as well. Here are a few tips on how you can make your own roman blinds:

  • Take measurements of the window and buy the required fabric. Once the measurements and the fabric are in hand, stitch up the sides and the bottom of the fabric.
  • Once the fabric has been stitched, mark the positions of the dowels on the fabric and make sure that you do it on regular intervals and keeping in mind the height of the window.
  • Next stitch dowel casings on the fabric.
  • Mark the dowel rings and stitch on that too.
  • Position and fix the batten to the window, stitch in the dowel and hang the blinds.
