Vertical Window Design

Are you feeling bored with your vertical blinds? Here is a design project you can do yourself on a weekend to cover the hardware of your vertical blinds with traditional curtains with a contemporary style. What You Need: Fabric of Any Material and Pattern Metal Ring Clips Two Tassels Trimming with Tassels Scissors Vertical Blinds Directions: 1. Cut half a width of fabric for each side panel. Using blind stitching, add side seams and hems. 2. For the valance, sew together two widths of fabric in the center and hem the panel. Prepare a scallop-shaped pattern on paper and use this to cut scallops along the top edge. Use a basting stitch into the panel to keep the valance from falling apart. Add the trimming to decorate the scallops. Use the same process for the header of the side panels. 3. Clip the metal rings to the points in the scallop and slide them over a curtain rod over the vertical blinds. Place the valance on each of the side panel to make the three pieces look like a seamless piece. Tie the side panels back with a tassel to keep it from hindering the operation of the vertical blinds. These curtains and valances will frame your vertical blinds and will up the “wow” factor of your motorised vertical blinds. Check out our line of vertical blinds; these all come in several shades and colours that can complement any room in any style.
