I want a new set of curtains, but I want to hang them like a shower curtain, just because I like the look. To do this I need to work grommets
into the fabric, and I don't have one simple clue how to do such a thing. I like grommets in my clothing and crafts, but have always avoided using them because I didn't understand how easy it could be to install them.
ModHomeEcTeacher has a simple tutorial on installing grommets
. Basically, all you have to do is mark your fabric where you want the grommet to be, take your handy dandy little grommet tool and give it a good thump. Next, cut out the indentation the tool made, and insert the grommet pieces on each side of the hole. Find your grommet tool again, and give it 5 good whacks with the hammer. Voila, installed grommets.
My goodness, who knew it was that easy to install grommets? Imagine all the possibilities now. You can finally put in the string for your new shopping tote
, hang your newly sewn curtains
, and get busy making your next craft project.
