Simple Shades for the Living Room

I realized I forgot to post pictures of these.  I actually did these a while ago to replace the very glamorous cotton blanket hanging in these windows.  Pip is very happy to have this replacement.  I also made a matching one for the front window, but due to mis-measuring, the wine colored strip is on the side, rather than the top.  Hee hee.

The Pattern is from Two Straight Lines Simple Blinds TutorialI became extremely irate with the whole thing when trying to turn the impossibly thin tabs, so substituted ribbon instead.  Also, I didn’t top-stitch, which I probably should have done, but since I am so highly impatient when finishing projects…well, let’s just be happy they’re done.  All in all, it is a very easy project, as I have very little sewing experience.

  1. Your blinds are great!! I love the clean line look! I have a spare room that needs a window covering, perhaps I should have a look at that pattern. Can’t wait to see your next project!
