Ready to start?

I am thinking about starting the roman shade project. I have rough cut fabrics for the shades and the lining and have given them a press.This means I cut a piece off of the 8 yards of fabric that is a bit longer than what I need. This was so I could press a smaller length of fabric rather than trying to press 8 yards. Thank goodness for my big board ironing surface.





I want to press again before actually cutting to the required dimensions. I am not sure I am mentally ready to do this project, but I guess I have put if off long enough. Today I think I will cut the lining fabric and sew the tube tape to it. At least it will be a start. And to think I have to make 3 of these shades. I guess it will be easier after I have made the first one.

My mantra for today is measure, measure, measure and then measure again.

Thanks for reading.

Chris

Getting small parts done each day moves the project forward. Good luck!
