7. Cut and Fit Eyelets Cut out the fabric from inside the circles, do not worry about a little fraying as the eyelet rings will hide it. Place the eyelet ring in place, the one with the raised edge should be placed along the back of the fabric and then place the pronged section on top of that and press, till it fits in perfectly.
Apart from the use in the arched windows, there are many other areas where these are commonly used. As mentioned earlier, these are used for arched windows, bow windows, bay windows and even for the corner windows. The rods for bay windows are used if the same has a semi-circular shape. Beds which are covered with sheer curtains most often require bendable or curved rods. Round bed canopies are popular and look awesome when dressed with lace curtains. For such canopies, using a flexible rod is the best idea. Bendable rods are also used for shower curtains as well. If you have a bathtub, placed in the center of the bathroom, that needs to be enclosed using a curtain, the rod is the ultimate option. This will ensure that the chosen curtain nicely cover's the tub from all sides.
There are various patterns, variety, colors and sizes made available for you. If at all, you do not find a suitable one for your window, you can get it stitched. We shall first do the measurements required in order fit the curtains. With the help of a yardstick, draw a line across the top, bottom and sides of the area you want to cover. This forms the window, measure this across the top, bottom and sides. After measuring, note down the largest measurement. The next step is to measure the entire surface area covered by the window. Make a note of the side of the window with the longest measurement. The largest of the sides and the one noted down previously, will form the actual size of the window. Now we move on to the stitching of the curtains. You need to first purchase a fabric measuring a little more than this size to allow room for error while sewing. A hem of 5/8 inch needs to be sewed on both the sides of the curtain. Mark a hem of 1 inch on the top and bottom of the curtain. Both ends of the curtain should have a pocket. Attach the cafe rods on the lines marking the top and the bottom of the curtain. These rods should be as close as possible to the door. Remove the rods from the mounting brackets, and slide them through the top and bottom hem pockets of the curtain. Replace the rods in the brackets and then finally adjust the gathers at the top and bottom, which will complete the procedure. I am sure this article must have proved to be of help for choosing curtains for French doors. Along with curtains, you can also use drapes and roll up blinds to give it that extraordinary look and feel. Make sure you select the design according to the color and design of the door. If the curtains perfectly match the outlook of the room, it will add to the homeliness of the house in general.
