I came across a glitch in my roman shade method that I wanted to share and hopefully spare some of you some pain too! On the back of the shade from Home depot they are now covering the loop that holds the drawstring with a plastic cover?! Just pull that right off and thread the drawstring directly through the ring and re-tie it at the bottom. Your shade should work fine following that mending! Here's the shade I did for Gideon' room!

I keep receiving lots of questions on the how-to of these roman shades, please keep shooting over questions...I"m considering doing a video so as to clear up any confusion!! Let me know if you'd like one?!!
