Curtains with lambrequins can contain several types of folds - toad, tie, cokilier and bell. We buy fabric and calculate the amount of fabric that we will use. For lambrequins, we take several types of fabric.
Divide the fabric into several squares and cut diagonally. We sew the ribbon for the loops to the canvas so that the folds are obtained. Add decorative elements.
We select the cornice. For curtains with lambrequins, they do not pick up too elaborate cornices, It is better to give preference to a simple type of cornice. The pipes do not look very good. We hang the lambrequins.
We select fabric or desired material. It is preferable to use polyester. Measure the window size. We attach the fabric to the cornice for this we put one side on the other, the width of the cornice. We process the ends. We also make a pocket from below. We make two holes on the pipe.
We insert the pipe into the pocket made in advance. Wrap the fabric on the pipe. In the lower pocket we insert a weighting agent. In special holes on the cornice, we spread the cords.
We fix the cord with a knot. We wrap the cord on the pipe on one side. So that the cord does not fall insert special plugs to the end. In the wall above the window we insert special designs that will hold the cornice. But the pipe should scroll freely.
You can facilitate your task with the help of special finished designs that will raise and lower the fabric.
French curtains are a set of folds at different heights. To make such curtains, you need to take more fabric and at the same height it is beautiful to choose the fabric. To the place where the fabric is assembled, you can attach beads or beads.
