Grommet Curtain Tutorial www.carryingsunshine.com
Picture


Grommet Rings.  These were purchased at JoAnn Fabrics.  They come in packs of 8 rights, so you will need one package per panel.

Fabric was also purchased at JoAnn Fabrics.


Picture


After sewing a 3 inch (or larger) hem in your curtains, accordion style fold your curtains 8 equal times.  One fold for each grommet.

Picture


Find the center of the panel and place a stick pin from the bottom to the top.  Next center the template (that comes with the grommets) on the pin.


Picture


Trace a circle onto your fabric using the template.

Picture


Remove your template from the pin.  Remove one layer of fabric from the pin and place your template back on the pin.  Be sure to only remove one layer of fabric.  This will give you 4 circles on the front of your fabric and 4 on the back. 

Picture



Cut each circle out carefully.

Picture


There are 16 grommets in the package, two for each hole.

Picture


Place the grommet half with the lip on it one one side of the fabric and carefully place the other half on top.  I found it best to use the palm of my hands and snap them together.

Finished!

I'm making a shoer curtain this week and may try this instead of button holes. Thanks!
