Creating Shades

Sue is sharing her insights and tips for creating window shades. This sample uses Ty Penningtons fabric line from Westminster Fabrics.

First measure the INSIDE of your window frame.

Next buy a vinyl shade and brackets. Follow the manufacturers instructions for mounting the shade. Once mounted, remove the shade roller and remove the vinyl shade from the roller.
Bottom rail, brackets, shade roller, and Fuse-a-shade

Measure the tube portion of the shade roller. Cut your fabric 2 inches wider than the roller and the length of your window. Fuse your fabric to Fuse-A-Shade material the same width and length as your material.

Next week, Sue explains how to trim your shade, add the trim and bottom rail and attaching your shade to the roller.
