How to Make a 2-Toned Button Window Shade

With the right buttons and fabric, this window shade could work in just about ANY style of room. And, dare I say, it's as cute as a button? (My bad.) Anyway, if you'd like to crank one out, here's a list of materials you'll need:

  • Measuring tape
  • 2 contrasting fabrics, for front and back of shade
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Twill tape
  • Metal ruler
  • Pencil
  • Thread
  • Sewing machine
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Seam ripper
  • 6 buttons
  • Hand-sewing needle
  • Tension rod to fit inside window

For the sewing instructions, head on over to this page at Women's Day.
