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.
What about good, old-fashioned rubber cement?
Teresa, I think I'm going to be your new best friend (tee hee). Here is a video and the page for instructions (printable) for exactly this project. Have fun. http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/pac_ctnt_9 ... Top%20Ten%20Link%20Nine:alicewindows (click on the "No-Sew Roller Shade" video. I'd like to try this myself.

I would go w/ the HGTV project - rubber cement can make for an unsmooth surface which wille be important for this project plus my limited experience w/ rubber cement is that it doesnt adhere as well as other glues...jmho..cj in camas, wa
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.
Is there a way to "fix" a roll up shade? Have one that always unrolls to floor,other wise in good condition. Thanks for any advise
