  • Italian strung curtains

    Hello

    Hope this works...

    Just hung Italian Strung curtains, sorry photo is not brilliant, needed to have a cleat put on the wall and a small screw hook for the string to go through, but ladies husband went out! so maybe better photos later.

    The fabric is LA Tivoli in gold, interlined, puff ball heading with fringing on edges, along top and tassle in the middle from troynorth.

      kathy,

      The curtains look very opulent! What a lovely job. What width tape did you use? What did you stuff your heading with please?

        I use a 2" tape on them, I havent used velcro, which I think is the norm for these curtains but I didnt feel confident that they would stay. The 2" tape is not woven pocket, it is string pocket which will strech, so I put lots of curtain hooks in.

        The puff ball heading was netting from merrick and day, which they use for that purpose, I think it was folded over four times, you have to manipulate it.

        These curtains caused alot of hassle, they took me ages to get round to doing the stringing bit at the back, as I kept putting it off mainly as I didnt feel confident at all, but actually it wasnt all that bad and they look great.

        I think I might make a pair for my french door.

          Hi All

          I have a little problem - now I know I probably should of put these curtains up with velcro, but I was worried that they would fall down, as they are heavy. So I suggested a track and for them to be hung. No confidence in the hanging department unless it is basic curtain hanging - probably would be good to get a fitter.

          Anyhow my problem is that when my customer lets the strings go and drops the curtains, the puff ball heading falls forward and she want it to stay back.

          I suggested that her husband put some batten above the track and I nail the heading back, but I think he doesnt want to do that.

          So do you have any ideas what would be best?


          Also customer has decided she might like more of a swoop in the top of the curtains and is talking about moving the rings!!!! Is that a good idea???

          Thanks for any comments, seeing customer next Tuesday.
