    Roman window shades

    I have some gorgeous orange fabric that i'd love to make into a roman window shade- they look so easy! But i have no idea how to go about it, and i can't find any tutorials. has anyone done this before, or know where i can find some step-by-step instructions?

    Check the rack of DIY magazines at your local Home Depot, Lowes or whatever. Usually there's a window treatment how-to in there. That's where I picked up mine, oh too many moons ago.

    I haven't made roman blinds, but read about how-to. They looked pretty simple.

    I've been saving this link in my email for 3 years! Seems like a great tutorial:

    This doesn't solve the how-to-make-a-roman-shade problem, but I thought of a good alternative idea: Ikea has some really cheap white roman shades that could easily be dyed any color. I think I might keep this in mind for moving next year...

    I just got 2 of the ikea ones from their as-is section. The quality is kinda crappy, but they were cheap enough.
