Good thing I have a lot of hair
or I would have been bald from pulling it out!
As you could have guessed I am really not enjoying making the roman shades for my daughter. I have completed one except for hemming it at the top and sewing on the velcro to attach it to the header board. I still have to order the velcro, pull cords, and hardware.
All I can say is, "What a process...and not a fun one at that." Those videos online that say making a roman shade is easy have lied.....Just saying.
The thing I find the most frustrating is cutting out these huge pieces of fabric accurately. I have a big cutting table that is 60 in by 36 in, but the pieces are larger than the table. To top it off the fabric is a directional fabric and it was not really printed 100 % straight on the fabric. An all over print would have been much easier. Then of course I put my pencil or rotary cutter down and then can't find them.
I am out of the curtain business after this adventure.
Well back to work.
A little sympathy or encouragement will be appreciated.
