    For the rings, fold a narrow strip sides to middle, then in half and then put it through the machine, much quicker than making rouleaux. Sew appropriate lengths into the seam. Then challenge the old bats to pull them off. This will be quicker than sewing on rings.
    Otherwise, simplify the shape as much as possible, unless they've specified bananas, do straight bands at whatever width is right for the length of the curtains.
    Sorry, not much help!
