How many of you whip up domestic wear on your sewing machines at home? Cushions, a pair of curtains, your own kitchen apron? How about your own window blinds?
I use my sewing machine for my textile art and wouldn’t have a clue where to start when making my own blinds. So where would I go?
I can recommend Blinds-Supermarket for a fantastic choice of Roman, Venetian, Pleated, Wooden, Vertical, Roller and Woodweave blinds. They come in a choice of colours, sizes and what I really love is that there is the option to personalise your own finish. Just like in the photograph above, you could have a beautiful beach scene in your room. If that wasn’t enough you also have the choice of lined, unlined and blackout blinds which are great for children’s bedrooms (I know they’re also great for keeping rooms warm in winter and cool in summer).
There are blinds to suits all budgets and they say:
“Our Roman blinds will add a luxurious touch to any window without costing the Earth. We’re offering savings of up to 80% off the recommended retail price, giving you the perfect opportunity to create a new look for your home.”
If you are thinking of redecorating for summer you really won’t find a better deal than this.
There is also the fantastic free child safety device that comes with the Roman blinds which secures the cord away from children, this is something I and many of my friends would certainly use in our homes.
The website offers free delivery on orders over £99 and free fabric samples so you can try colours and patterns with your own home décor before deciding if it works right for your home needs.
As much as I love designing my own fabrics through Spoonflower I would take the opportunity to have made to measure blinds at home. It takes the hassle and time out of cutting the fabric, making sure the measurements are right before sewing and getting all the window fittings. Why not let someone else do all the hard work for you?
