Part 2 of the roman shade project. I followed the intructions from here. I have sewn the front fabric and lining fabric together like a pillowcase. Here it is turned inside out and I am measuring out how I want the folds to be spaced out.
I have the fabri-tac out to glue the plastic battens onto the shade. Since the shade is inside out the battens will not be seen once the shade is up but they will give the folds a nice structured fold instead of bunching up when the shade is pulled up. I don't recommend using the battens on sheer fabric, silk fabric and others like that where the battens would show through.
