Hi really helpful tutorials.
I’m confused with lining too?
I have super soft blackout lining, is this the only lining I need?
Many thanks Michelle
No we make a blackout roman blind with the blackout sandwiched between cotton lining on the back of the blind and the face fabric. If you just use the blackout lining and follow the LINED roman blind tutorial, the blackout will not go fully to the edges of the blind and there will be lines of horizontal stitch lines through the blackout where the rod pockets are. So if you follow this BLACKOUT roman blind tutorial you will need cotton lining as well.
I was wondering when slip stitching the lining to the fabric, do you pick up the blackout in the stitch or just the side hem?
Kind thanks for your fab tutorials!
No just stitch into the side fold of the fabric.
Thank you for the tutorials, I'm finding them very helpful. I've got myself confused over the materials though, I bought some super soft blackout curtain liner from Terry's fabrics - is this just blackout, or the liner or both?
The blackout lining and the lining are different. You will see the difference between the two in the videos.
I have used thermal lining for my lining and put the rod pockets on the silver thermal side, which looks like it’s wrong????
Can I have the rod pockets on the inside of the blind instead of on the topside....I know it’s not right but could it work.?
No idea its not a method we have tried or used in the workroom.
