For fruitful work you will need:

  • thick fabric (see photo);
  • wooden plank as the eaves of roller blinds;

  • decorative garter ribbons (for raising / lowering the curtains, we will use them, and not the electric drive);
  • screw-ring (2 pieces);
  • screw hook (2 pieces).

Prepare the canvas

Handmade curtainsAfter you have chosen the material you like (taking into account wallpaper and furniture), measure the desired size of the fabric. We add 2 cm on each side in width and 10 cm in height of future roller blinds, as was shown in our first photo. Now the pattern must be sewn. To do this, fold the fabric inside out and gently stitch it from three sides. Then, unscrew the self-made bag on the front side and carefully iron it.

The weighting agent should be inserted into the bag according to the fabric size. This can be a wooden bar, metal bar or plastic gymnastics stick.

Since you decided to do everything with your own hands, consider your possibilities. Therefore, choose as the weighting agent for roller blinds the easiest option for you to handle.

Having laid the chosen weighting agent, lay the machine line above it, stepping back by 0.5 cm. And the hole under it must be sewn by hand.Now the canvas is completely ready and you can go to the fastener. Do not rush to worry in advance - it is not so difficult. Especially for a person who has studied a certain number of video lessons on repairing their own hands.

Making a cornice

Screw fixingSo, you have successfully prepared a sheet of rolled curtains to match the wallpaper and with the weighting under. How to fix it on the window frame? The mechanism is extremely simple and consists in the following:

  • Sew the "pocket" for the eaves. To do this, tuck the material by 5-7 cm and gash it.
  • Put a wooden bar in the “pocket”, which will be the eaves.
  • Screw two screws into the bar (ringssee photo), in the window frame - two screws-hooks. Attention! Ring and hook must match. Therefore, remember the principle of "measure seven times ..." and do not hurry.

That's the whole installation. It remains only to hang the roller blind. The last open-ended question you need to solve is to provide a mechanism for raising and lowering the curtain.

Since you do not use the electric drive, think about the decorative ribbons.
Just throw them over the eaves and tie under the weighting at the desired height, as shown in the photo above.

Now step back three steps and admire a creation created by yourself. And the fabric is the color of the wallpaper, and the ribbons are chosen perfectly, and the whole design fits in harmoniously with the decor.

How to care

Roller blindsEach hostess knows that to make something unique is only half the work and even installation is not the most laborious task. Things to take care of. Roller blinds are no exception to the rule. Especially if you hung them in the kitchen or in the children's room. There is no problem, however.

After that, the fabric is washed and re-installed on the window frame, but with clean and fragrant freshness.
