Customised Blinds to match your curtains

Materials: Enje Roller Blinds

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 ;)

Leave the blinds to dry – laid out flat.

Trim the edges so there is a cm overlap. Put glue on the blind and fold over the overlap – iron straight – to get a nice neat edge.

Hang the blinds. Enjoy the fruits of your labours :)

    What is a ” binbag? ” I don’t understand what that means at all. And how will putting glue on the blind keep it from soaking through the fabric? It will still soak through. Seems some type of spray adhesive would be better than glue if the fabric is indeed that thin.
