What materials did you use? light weight shade lining. I bought remnants of it for $2.00 a yard. My sister bought the fabric which was like drapery fabric, but was just 45" wide. Nylon cording and plastic rings

My sister picked a grey fabric with a white feather pattern for her kitchen door and window. We had to have HER measure the windows using FaceTime because we live 100 miles apart. Then she got the fabric per my yardage calculations and brought it to my place and I made the shades. She took them home and hung them up - PERFECT FIT - both windows! My only problem was that the fabric was 45" wide (not the expected 54") and her kitchen window is 41" wide!!!!!!! I adjusted the side folds to 1" to make it work. Thanks again for the great pattern!

Love the photos! Thanks for including a workroom shot - that's sweet :) Your shades look great and that's really something when you are working long distance. I can't wait to see what you do next!
