ok...so my plastic horizontal blinds really arent cutting it anymore...ive been pet sitting a cat that has chewed them up,you can see right through them now! lol  ...probably because they were already broke and wouldnt open in the first place Undecided
but anywho since theyre broken ive been wanting to replace them...but i dont want to use horizontal blinds,ive been seeing these awesome cloth blinds/curtain things...but i have no idea how to even begin to make them.....is there a tutorial on here somewhere or does anyone know how i could go about making these?

well the second one  is made with ring tape.
and ther is a good tute here http://www.wrights.com/class/homedec/romanshade2/romanshade2.htm
or you could sew rings of some sort to the fabric at regualr intervals

i'll take a guess at the first one too.  a big strip of fabric with a stick of some sort at  the top and bottom and two strings attached to the bottom to hold it up as you roll it up.  if you put an eyescrew in the window frame above each string you could run both to one side of the window frame. i'll look a bit more for that one.

I have a great book on sewing your own window treatments, but it's at home...and I'm not.
