  • How to avoid light bleed in blackout lining when attaching commercial rod tape

    I would like to make a blackout Roman blind with rod pocket tape sewn on the back. I appreciate I will have light bleed across the blind where the tape is sewn on, but that's ok as it will be in a straight line across the blind and doesn't look so odd. However, the problem I have is how to stop the face and lining fabrics from slipping when they are in the machine. I would normally pin the layers together above and below where the tape is being attached, but this will cause pin pricks in the blackout in random places and I think will look very bad. Does anyone have a solution, thanks in advance

    You could use double sided sticky tape between the layers. This holds everything firmly in place.
    Best wishes

      But place it away from the stitching line......

        Thanks for your replies. I was thinking since, maybe I could pin it on the line where the tapes will be stitched on
