redo a ripped window shade

I saw this on HGTV, I took the ripped shade off the perfectly fine roller, then I used duct tape to tape oilcloth from the fabric store to the roller and taped a hem for the stick on the bottom. total cost of repair and an attractive new shade, $2.38! I picked pretty oilcoth too and have been asked where I got the shade!
