Upcycled Blind

I know I’m not alone in having lots of odd pieces of fabric stashed around the house, you never know when it might come in handy right? And when my nosy neighbour had become too much too bear, I decided I needed something for my front door and that’s when those offcuts came in rather useful to make an upcycled blind.

I had ordered a small piece of chevron fabric online yonks ago on the premise that I would use it for making some cushions and hadn’t got round to it (classic). So that along with a rather lovely unwanted silk vintage dress provided all the materials I needed to create my blind.

By lining the chevron fabric with a section of the dress fabric it meant I could keep light (and prying eyes) away. It also provides a lovely turquoisey hue through the black and white when it’s sunny. The key, as with any sewing project, is pressing the fabric before sewing to ensure it fits like a dream.

A simple white pole and hooks to hang it above the window finished off the project adding a bold graphic and functional feature to my hallway.
