I made some Roman Shades from the mini blinds I had hanging in my kitchen. I wanted something a little softer looking. I used THIS tutorial.
It was a little harder than I was expecting. Other then the length, I was pretty happy with the end result. I love that it's functioning, and that I had the material on hand from a left-over curtain. Can't beat a nearly free project. I just had to buy some fabric glue, with my coupon it was around $3. Not too shabby.
