Hi there, It is possible to buy Roller Blind kit, which might solve your problem. Otherwise fix large hooks on the top or side timbers to take Bamboo pole or Dowel/
Broom handle. Fix screen net to Pole by means of Pins etc. At same time attach long ribbons / cords along top to hold rolled up blind. Form a pocket at the bottom of blind to take a lath of timber for weight. Roll up and secure with ties..... Hope that's of help to you.
Here's an article that might help - https://www.sailrite.com/How-to-Make-Roller-Shades-Video
With the current width of your fabric the kits for shades or Roman shades are very pricey! You may wish to consider cutting the width in half and making 2 different roller shades, or put a long dowel at the bottom and closet rod hooks higher up so you can roll and hang to there.
You don’t even need a Roman shade blind kit. You just need the plastic rings and some sort of twine or rope. Go online for a pattern of how to place rings.
Hello again, Pleased to have been able to help......
These are simple roll up shade ideas for outdoor shades. Forget the interior kits. Just some simple hardware and rope is all you need.
