I have done this many times. It works fine on small windows with light weight fabrics. For larger windows the fabric is too heavy for the springs in the rollers that come with the vinyl shades. For large windows you need a heavy duty roller that is found on more expensive custom shades.

I have 2 small windows that need covering and have old shades. There just is not enough hours in the day for all the things on my TO DO list.
