If using a curtain pole it is usually recommended that you put the hooks into the top row of strings in your tape so the curtain pole shows above your readymade curtains. Hooks should be placed at each end of each readymade curtains and then at intervals of approximately 4".
On the tape top there will be between 1 and 3 strings. First tie the strings together at the outside edge of each readymade curtain
Pull the readymade curtains along the string to gather them up. The readymade curtains should be gathered to just over half the window width. This will allow the readymade curtains to overlap when closed. Please note that once you have gathered readymade curtains they cannot be returned so make sure you are happy with the size and colour before you start
Once your readymade curtains are gathered to the right width tie off the strings at the inside end. Do not tie too tightly as it is common to loosen these off after a readymade curtains have been washed. You can, if you wish, trim the stings but again do not trim them too short. The string ends can then be tucked neatly into the tape so as not to be seen
Now hooks should be placed at each end of each readymade curtain and then at intervals of approximately 4".
You can now thread the hooks through the loops at the bottom of your curtain rings
Thread the curtain rings onto the pole but make sure that the last ring is secured on the outside of the pole behind where is attached to the wall as this will anchor the readymade curtains and stop them from moving when you close them.
