and i can't afford made to measure blinds at the moment.
Any other child proof ideas please ?

make your own roman blinds?
not that difficult

it is tricky if you don't have 'stanrd' sized window sections though Hana. The roman blind kits with all the rods and track etc included only come in standard widths

oh - you don't need a kit though, I made some for most of our windows without the kits

Argos sell a roll of curtain track that curves round and you cut it to the right size.

we have one as our bay is 11ft.

How do you mean childproof?

we have 2 15 foot bays in our house and they were a flaming nightmare to dress.

We shelled out for some lovely custom romans for the living room bay but for the bay in DD's bedroom I bought some special bendable Swish track, had to buy 2 as they don't do them in one long enough piece. I made the curtains myself with blackout lining and header tape, the works. Oh, and I am crappola at sewing but it was easy as pie. Time consuming though !

This is my track

We had track and the buggers pulled it off, they have also ruined vertical blinds before now, the horrors.
Is track my best bet do you think ?

Get a bay window curtain pole and put up curtains. we've got one but it was left by the previous owners so i don't know how much they cost.
