Old baguettes and standard mounts, which became widespread during the Soviet era, are morally obsolete.
All these hooks, clothespins and plastic rings were not practical, especially when windows had to be curtained frequently.
The fabric periodically slipped into the hooks and clothespins, the rings cracked and lost, and with the uniform distribution of the fabric along the eaves, there were always problems.
They were replaced by new curtain rods, blinds and curtains on the grommets, which can be purchased in finished form or made independently - if there are special metal rings (grommets).
Features of eyelet curtains
The originality of design and comfort in the room depends largely on the design of windows. Exquisite curtain fabric looks particularly attractive in the form of beautiful curtains on the grommet.
This type of curtains or curtains does not require special design delights, they are self-sufficient.
Special metal rings, fixed at equal distances over the top of the curtains, evenly distribute them on a smooth cornice.
Wavy folds are formed, gently falling to the floor. No complicated tailoring is required here - a stylish chrome-plated accessory remains the main element responsible for the design of “clothes for windows”.
This is very practical when shifting the fabric along the eaves. The easiest way to transfer curtains in the "day - night" mode involves a transparent tulle in the middle of the eaves and thick curtains at the edges.
Shifting the central element on the grommets, we obtain a seal of the central segment, and the “night” curtains on the grommet with tulle are moved apart to the sides.
We get a decrease in daylight and an impenetrable screen in the evening lighting of the room. In the morning tulle returns to its original position - with soft, wavy folds, which is very convenient. Read here! Short curtains - how to combine them beautifully in the interior? Instruction + photo

It is not difficult to care for this type of curtain - remove it from the “piercing” cornice, stretch it in manual mode and squeeze it through a centrifuge.
The main wish is that they should not be kept wet for a long time, so that metal rings do not give rust.
Quality baguette rings have a special anti-corrosion coating. There are plastic rings that do not rust. Grommets are tight (permanent) fixation and removable, which is convenient for washing.
Ironing is like ordinary curtains or tulle, depending on the type of fabric, gently passing the tip of the iron around the holes or one-piece eyelets.
Gone after washing or ready-made curtains on the grommets, prepared to curtain windows, are strung with an “accordion” on a round baguette and fixed at the edges.

How to sew curtains on the grommet with their own hands
Independent production of spectacular "clothes" for windows on the rings n will be difficult, the main thing is to get the necessary accessory in the right quantity.
Plastic or metal rings vary slightly in size, and if there is a round cornice, the diameter of the hole should be much larger than the section of the baguette rod.
Pre-mark equal distances between the sections, which subsequently form soft folds. Glue interlining seals the grommets.
There are 2 options - to make the seam over the rings or tuck over the entire area under the holes, this mount will be more reliable.
At equal distances make round holes for the grommets, which have 2 tight-fitting parts.
