I wanted to share this project again because it is such an easy way to create a roman shade that actually works and looks great.
To make the roman shade, you will have to start by taking apart the blinds. You will need to only keep a few of the blinds, which will work as the rods that lift the shade.
I just used five, spaced ten inches apart. If you space them closer together, you will get more folds, when you draw the shade.
Once you have everything measured out and lined up, you will just glue the fabric to the blinds with a permanent fabric glue like Fabri-Tac or Fabri-Fix.
Put glue on the blinds around the holes. The cord will still need to be able to move through the hole in the blinds for the shade to work.
