Description: Buy IKEA Roller blinds. I chose Enje as they are very light weight.
Cut the desired material to size. I did a band at the bottom the height of the curtain pattern repeat. These blinds are only decorative and will not be pulled down so you won’t be able to tell that the material does not go all the way up.
“Hem” the material using fabric glue and an iron to get a straight edge at the top and the bottom. Leave the material at the sides with a good overlap.
Stick the hemmed material onto the blind. Very important tip – put the glue directly onto the blind and NOT the material as it will soak through. Tip #2 place a bin bag under the blind to stop the glue getting onto the surface you are resting on. Tip #3 – remove binbag as soon as you have finished gluing otherwise it will also be stuck to your blind 😉
