Covering a Roll-up Shade

I need instructions for covering my roll up shades with fabric to match my comforter. I'm sure it can be done, I'm just not sure what adhesive to use that will remain soft and not crack up when the shade is rolled up and down.

There's a product you can buy at the fabric shops which is a wide fusible specifically for making roll-up shades. Just go in and ask. It's great for making matching shades and for other home dec projects which need large amounts of moderately stiff fusibles.

I think you can buy a kit for repairing them. I was looking for a shade for my skylight and saw the kit at the www.hunterdouglas.com web site or you can check Lowes website. Good luck.
