I saw Kirstie Allsopp making these fantastic blinds on one of her craft programmes, and just fell in love with the idea! It looks relatively simple to do, but produces a gorgeous, personal finishing touch. I think that this might be a good way to add a further personal touch to our bathroom, and would allow a subtle injection of our accent colour.
