I made these Roman shades for my kitchen after we moved into our country home five years ago
They are the “real”, working, Roman shades. Coming from a suburban subdivision, I thought we would need to cover our windows at night, like in the old neighborhood. Can I tell you how many times I’ve lowered them out here in the country? (Neighbors a half mile away.) Maybe five times, at the most, and that was when it was below freezing outside and I was trying to hold the heat inside during the night. So, why did I go to so much trouble?
Rather than showing you how to make these working shades, which I may yet in the future, I thought I’d give you a link to the Imparting Grace blog post where she gives a tutorial on how to make Faux Roman Shades. She will show you step-by-step how to make them with or without sewing a stitch.
My Roman shades look very different from most because I added a contrast fabric section along the bottom, drew it up at the center, and added a button. Just for a little more detail, you know. We curtain queens are like that. Can’t leave well enough alone.
So head on over to Imparting Grace for her tutorial, then come back here for more Curtain Queen Decor fun.
