Instead of using the old mini blind slats, hand sew small plastic rings to the places where the slats above have their holes. Thread the mini-blind string through the rings and tie at the bottom ring. OR glue/sew pockets using add'l liner fabric to hide slats. See PureOfFaith.blogspot.com in favorites.
Easy, NO SEW roman shades (for 4.50!) Made with mini blinds! @ Objective Home. Totally going to start following this blog and totally going to try out this project! Husband has been bugging me to replace our old worn out blinds with Roman shades but I just can't do the price. This is easy and affordable!
