Roman Blinds

With their simple clean lines, Roman Blinds are one of the most stylish ways to dress up a window.

They can be used outside the window or fitted inside the window recess and combined with curtains or a pelmut.

Roman blinds are best made from light to medium weight fabrics and are usually lined.

Whilst we can have a Roman Blind made to your requirements and arrange for it to be fitted, your own craft skills can be applied  to a practical project which you can get plenty of use and enjoyment from. With only straight seams to sew, a Roman Blind is straightforward to make and will transform your windows.

Typically, the following items would be required to make a lined plain Roman blind fitted onto a wooden batten.

  • Fabric
  • Lining
  • Glass fibre Roman Blind rod, ( or wooden dowel could be used )
  • Roman Blind tape or small plastic rings, approximately 0.5″ (12mm) in diameter
  • Wooden or brass acorn
  • Roman Blind cord
  • Wall cleat
  • Stick and sew Velcro, enough for the width of the blind
  • Wooden Batten approx 1” (2.5cms) x 1” (2.5 cms) x the width of the finished blind
  • Screw eyelets.

The bottom edge of the blind may be finished plain or embellished with coordinating fabric or braid

All the above items are available from Threads, ( except the Wooden Batten and Wooden Dowel ) and we will be pleased to offer any advice and guidance on making a Roman Blind.
