Make a roman shade out of an old blind. Line a piece of fabric 1" wider than your blind and 3" longer. Attach to top of blind and bottom with hot glue or velcro. Attach fabric every 7" to blind string and wala, you have a new blind.
No sew roman shade, I've been looking for a long time for a no sew shade that isn't a faux shade, this is it! Taking this idea and combining it with another blogs suggestion to use a table cloth to save on fabric cost.
