Blinds to Roman Shade

Jenny at littlegreennotebook had a great idea to convert plain-jane miniblinds into a roman shade, taking advantage of the "rigging" that mini-blinds have. Here's my version using Ikea fabric and thermal blackout fabric as backing.

I think my slightly uneven folds have character. It's an organic roman shade.

OK.I knoooow this is a REALLY old post BUT I found this via Pinterest and just had to ask how your shades have held up.. almost 3 years later? Also, the weight of the bock out fabric? Was that an issue at all?
Thank You so much sweety!
