Work is busy

Just finished these roman shades... There were two of these.  This fabric made some pretty shades but was a little bit difficult on the pattern. It has two definite rows of design that made up the pattern that ran up the fabric. In the center the pattern was not as heavy. Due to the size of the shades I kept having what visually looked like lop sided shades LOL... But I was able to get it all worked out to where the pattern looked balanced on the shades and they matched.


                                           Hand sewn side hems
Ladder tape enclosing the cord, this is per ANSI safety regulations for roman shades. This prevents a choking hazard to children. Rings are place every 8" which is also a regulation.
Warning labels go on every shade that leaves the work room, in English and Spanish per ANSI safety regulations. 

Lots of safety regulations to follow these days.


I think you will agree the pattern looks balanced and not heavy to one side. I am almost embarrassed to admit how long it took me to figure the placement. It looks simple in the photo but as I said there was space in the center that was created by two rows of pattern running up the fabric, its sort of hard to explain. 
I think they turned out really nice.

Those shades turned out just beautiful! I still can't imagine being able to make Roman shades! Thank you so much for the dog food information. I plan to buy a bag of that tomorrow, and some canned tuna. Right now Eli is on Purina Puppy Chow. Poppy asked me a while back if I could contact you and find out how you make Keeper's food. I hate for Eli to have ear infections his whole life. Thanks again! I'll let you know how he does.

Wow what talent. You blinds remind me of my late grandmother's handmade patchwork quilts. I will blog about them. Do you employ people or do you do all the work yourself.
