roman blind

My first project in our new house was to make blinds. What kind of blinds you ask? well Nat and I both agreed that our favourite is roman blinds so my adventure began with a hunt for a pattern. My mom had a lady make them for her house and they look so great so going through patterns was quite disappointing not being able to find exactly what I wanted. I decided to buy the pattern that was closest to what I was looking for and tweak it. I thought that the sewing room would be a good place to start especially since the old vertical blinds just had to go. After many calls home to my mom to make notes on her blinds this is what I came up with. It's not perfect but I really enjoyed being able to use my sewing machine that I got for Christmas and now I can make improvements for my next blind. We're going shopping this week so I am going to arm myself with paint chips and hopefully find just the right fabrics for my other windows. And no Nat was not involved in choosing this fabric :)
