The use of loops and clips!!!-!!! If the strings you are using are too light, you may give them more weight by putting beads to the bottom of the thread. Cutting your threads to the appropriate length before hooking them to the canvas one at a time is a common excellent idea. This allows you to work more efficiently. You will discover that making use of canvas is a simple technique to maintain uniform spacing between your strings over extensive spans.

Hooks for latched rugs may be found in most businesses that sell fabric and crafts.

String curtains are a contemporary replacement for traditional sheers. Long, individual strands of string dangle down from the curtain rod all the way to the ground. This arrangement allows the strings to sway in the wind and for some light and air to enter the room while yet maintaining some level of seclusion. Due to the fact that these curtains are textured, utilitarian, and discreet, current interior design specialists like the kind of curtains that are shown here. You are free to use whatever colour of cording or thread that you choose while making a string curtain. Making one is simple.


Take a measurement across the aperture of the entryway, window, or window opening where you want to put the string curtain. If you want the curtain to lie completely flat along the curtain rod, then the width of the aperture is all you will need to measure. You need to add to the width of the measurement if you want the curtain to have a collected look. A conventional gather is twice as long as the original piece. Take your measurement starting at the bottom of the curtain rod and going all the way down to the ground or to the point where you want the strings to finish.

Your curtain width will determine the length of the strip of latch rug canvas that is 2 inches wide. In order to create a more robust structure, fold the canvas in half along its length. This particular kind of canvas contains holes that are square and vary from 5 to 8 per inch in size. You will have a finished curtain after you have attached your string to each aperture in one row along the length of the canvas.

Choose the piece of thread or cable that you’d want to use. You have the option of choosing between thicker strings or heavier yarns. Choose a string that has a great finish and not one that is prone to becoming knotted up quickly.

  1. Cut a thread to a length that is twice as long as required.

  2. Locate the exact middle of the string, then build a little loop there. To make the loop, you will need to keep the two sections together.

  3. Move a latch rug hook through the loop until it clicks into place. Move the hook so that it goes through the bottom of the first canvas hole on the left side of the rug canvas, which is located along the fold. In reality, you will pass through the canvas not once but twice.

  4. Maintain pressure on the hook as you do this until the latch opens. On the hook is a little piece of metal that is shaped like a hinge and serves as the latch. Assuming the latch is already open, thread the threads through the hook.

  5. Pull the hook back through the canvas to close the latch, being sure to do it in the opposite direction from how you opened it. To assemble, first thread the string loop through the canvas and then the canvas itself.

  6. Once all of the string has been threaded through, tighten it. To do this, pull the long threads that are slack so that you may tighten the knot in the canvas.

  7. Attach a length of string to the back of the canvas by threading it through each of the openings in the canvas.

  8. Make a piece of cloth that is three inches broad, the length of the canvas plus one inch, and three inches long.

  9. After folding the fabric in half so that the resulting fold is 1 and a half inches wide, slip it over the top edge of the canvas. Both the front and the back need to have the edge next to the strings folded under by half an inch, and then a seam has to be sewn 1/4 inch from where the string’s edge is. It is important that the cloth completely cover both sides of the canvas.

  10. Hem the sides of the garment and tuck the raw edges of the cloth under by half an inch.

  11. Before making any adjustments to the length, hang your drape using the loops and clips. Curtains are often hung using loops and clips, which are readily available wherever curtain rods are sold. This is the most common method. When you reach the desired length of the string, tie a knot in it to prevent the string from unravelling and to provide weight to the end of each string, which will assist in keeping the string in a straight position.

  12. Fold the fabric in half to 1 and 1/2 inches wide and slide the fold over the top edge of the canvas. Fold the edge near the strings under by 1/2 inch on both the front and the back, and sew a seam 1/4-inch from the string’s edge. The fabric should cover all of the canvas on both sides.

  13. Tuck each end of the fabric under 1/2 inch and hem your sides.

  14. Hang your curtain with loops and clips before adjusting your length. Loops and clips are a standard way to hang curtains and they can be found where curtain rods are sold. Make a knot in the string at your final length to keep the string from fraying and to add weight to the end of each string to help hold it straight.
