Before you start to engage in loops,Determine the height and process the top of the curtains. Please note that the width of the mounting tape must necessarily cover the hem of the fabric from the wrong side. If the cornice is open and you use a narrow braid, add 3 cm to the required amount of fabric. This is done so that the loops do not look over the curtains.
The hinges can be fastened to the curtain using velcro orFastened buttons, sometimes the role of loops is performed by rings, hooks attached to the curtain or magnetic rings. Effectively look curtains, tied with bows to the bar.
The loop itself can be made from strips of fabric,Lace or just a thick strong thread. To do this, you need to determine the number of loops, measure the distance between the loops and mark the places with chalk or a simple pencil.
