This is not an unattainable task if you have the fabric ready at home. Knowing how to sew curtains will help you to easily fix the grommet rings to the curtains and then hang it. You can purchase the kit for making grommet curtains from any upholstery shop. They will provide you the correct size for the rings and the rod, that has to be passed through it. The steps are explained in the following segment. First take the measurement of the curtain rod and the ring so that they complement each other. Buy the kit accordingly, or else you can purchase the materials separately and then assemble them. Decide how many rings you will require for fixing on the drape. The density of the pleats will depend on the spacing of the rings. If you fix the rings at least 1 inch apart from each other, then, the curtain fabric will be overlapped in a compact manner. This makes the curtain look much more voluminous. Before attaching the rings, you have to pierce holes of the same size to that of the ring on the panel of the curtain. Fold the panel and cut it in a circular fashion. Now sew the sides by hemming it. This forms the attachment zone of the grommet rings. If you have purchased a kit, you will get the punching tool for fixing the rings along with it. Read the instructions mentioned on the label and then start the process. The rings are double layered and you can start fixing according to the suggested technique. Punch it tightly so that they do not fall off, and fix it on the wrong side of the curtain. Once the holes are ready, you can easily pass the rods through it. Pleat it well so that the drapes look compact and full. Drape Designs
Now, you can leave the blinds in the water, overnight or for some hours, it will help to disintegrate the dirt. After this, you can wear gloves or socks in both hands, and start washing the blinds one by one.
Now this calls for a different cleaning strategy. For making cloth window blinds free of dirt, keep a vacuum cleaner handy. Ensure that the brush is dust-free. Non-greasy, but dirty and dusty, aluminum blinds can be made to look as if they are brand new simply by spraying them with water detergent mixture and then wiping them clean with a cotton rag. These can also be cleaned by soaking in a tub with a detergent solution and then just washing them under a shower.
You can make bay window curtain rods with the help of big sturdy branches or stumps cut out of trees. While using branches to make bay window curtain rods, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. Use branches that are relatively straight and sturdy and hang curtains that are made in some light material. To make curtain rods with branches, you need to hunt for three branches that are long enough to cover the entire width of the windows. Avoid using soft wood for this project as it will not be able to bear the weight of the curtains. Once you have found the branches, cut or trim them with a saw into the required shape and length. Now lightly sand the branches with a fine grit sandpaper and paint them with spray paint in a neutral color. When the paint is dry, mount the three branch rods on the three window casement of the bay window. Voila! Your branch bay window curtain rods are ready to mount on the brackets. You can hang tab-top or tie-top curtains for best results.
