Put up the roman shades according to instructions.
|[Mark where the brackets go and screw them in]|
|[Put the shades in place and secure]|
|[Shades are up. Now, take em back down so that you can add the fabric.]|
Lay out the shades. Then lay out the fabric and cut roughly to size.
|[Getting laid... haha....ha]|
|[Bennet laying out the fabric]|
|[Cut roughly to size]|
Spray the back of your fabric in open space (like my tiny patio) with adhesive. Then lay it out and stick!
|[The two glues]|
|[Stuck on you]|
Step 4:Unstick the top part where there are some strings that make the shade go up/down. Unstick, cut a slit to go around the string and then restick.
|[Cut the fabric. Don't worry it won't show.]|
|[Lay it back down. Can't even see it!]|
Trim the fabric using the roman shades as a guide. You can put your scissors right along the edges of a shade to get a close trim. Repeat this for the little flap along the top of the shades. This little flap is crucial for hiding all the strings and unclean lines at the top.
|[All glued on and trimmed]|
Add the double fold bias tape along the edges with Fabri-tac and voila! New custom shades! Put the shades back onto the bracket, and NAKED WINDO NO MO!
