    Roman Shades

    Has any one ever made them? They would look so nice for my kitchen windows. I've looked at so many tuts showing different ways to do them,but I'm still hesitating. If you've made them,was it as easy as the tut showed or a big waste of time. Kathy

    I have made many Roman shades. I sew them flat most of the time and the sew rings individually for the cord. I don't like the tape with rings.

      Be careful, they are very dangerous if there are small children around.

          I made them but used plastic rings instead of metal. In the heat of the sun they dried out and broke into lots of small pieces. They may not be as inconspicuous as plastic, but I suggest using metal rings.

            I made some many years ago when we first bought the house, last 1980's I think. I also sewed the plastic rings down. Never had any problem with the sun causing problems and one was in an east facing window, the other a south facing window.

              First ones I made used plastic rings , they broke but they were on east and west windows, so I always use the medal ones now.
