Yes, you can get a black out type fusible/interlining, it will iron on, so that bits easy enough, its just the roller mechanism - I was hoping I could do something with wood dowling/broom handle.
I like what you are saying about them being easy to cut down though, I can get the colour I need in a wider width, maybe I need to save myself the headache & by the sounds of it probably expense too - thank you
MMmmm - thanks - I figured it might be so, as googling brings up roller blind making kits - thanks for your help though, you've sort of answered my question & reminded me we have a local shop that probably sells the kits too - Think I will go & have a chat with them tomorrow to see if they can be used or adjusted to fit any width - I'm okay with complicated making, so long as I can get the stuff I need for it - thanks again
I've made a roller blind from a kit. You spray/soak your fabric with stiffening solution and then I actually hung it from a wooden batten outdoors to dry flat, then it's just cut and stick. That was ordinary furnishing fabric though.
The difficulty would be the blackout, you can only do one layer of fabric or it would be bulky/crinkly. Can you get blackout fabric in a colour you like and will it take stiffening?
It's fairly easy to cut down roller blinds in both width and drop, are you sure you can't get an oversized one and cut it down?
I need to make a Black Out Roller Blind for DDs room - turns out its an odd sized window & it's looking cheaper to make something to fit the window, rather than have one made to measure, besides I can get a bit creative & make it match her decor better than whats available
Would anyone have a good tutorial for making one of these from scratch please -
