Faux-No-Sew Roman Blind

I interrupt our regularly scheduled attic reno with a little DIY action.
Our kitchen window was lacking in the curtain department. I decided to head over to Pinterest to see what I could find. I found this tutorial. It was simple, easy and would only cost me 6 beans. The spring-rod curtain rods were $3 a piece, I already had a scrap of fabric left over from making a throw pillow a while back and some no-sew iron tape. All I needed to do was fold the fabric and seal the seams with the tape.

So as I expected I didn't do a great job of making sure the seams were exactly straight, but it will do for now. It only cost me a few dollars and the time of one nap session, so if I want to scrap this one and make something else, no big loss.
I would have liked to make three tiers like in the tutorial, but it would block out too much light as it's our only window in the kitchen.
Like the hands running into the picture?

  4. Thanks!! I got the fabric a few years ago at Joann Fabric. I actually looked recently so I could get some more but I coudn't find it. I believe it is Braemore, and it's Indoor/outdoor from their special order rack.

    1. Oh great, thanks! I'll keep my eyes open!
