I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Easy Roller Blind Makeover

Are you tired of blinds that look like this?

Then take them down! It's just embarrassing!

All you need is a pair of scissors, a strip of material and a sewing machine (or you could sew it by hand I suppose, but it would take a little more time. This job took less than an hour.)

Cut the fringe and that whole piece of blind right off up to behind the wooden pull bar.

Have a piece of material about 2-3 inches wider than your blind. It should be long enough to fold a hem over on both sides and envelope that wooden pull bar at the bottom of the blind. Fold the corners in at the sides and pin it to the shade.

I did one side and then the other, but if you're really good you could get away with one pass. 

As you can see I had to use a chair to hold the blind up while sewing to balance the weight of the roller.
And that's it. Told you it was easy : )
