Pelmet Fix 60cm Per1mt
Using Pelmform to make Pelmets:
1. First of all you will need to work out the length of your batten. Simply measure your curtain track
then add 10cm (5cm on either side). The length of Pelmform you require will be the length of
your batten plus the returns.
2. Cut the Pelmform to the required length, making sure to centre the pattern.
3. Cut out the design of your choice using either one of the pre-drawn designs OR your own design
using the square grid.
4. Cut your choosen fabric to the shape of the pelmform with an overlap of 2-3cm on all four sides.
When using double sided pelmform cut the lining material flush to the pelmet shape.
5. Lifting the backing paper in the centre of the Pelmform, cut it, then peel back a little on each side.
Making sure to match the centre of the Pelmform with the centre of your fabric. Place the fabric on
top of the Pelmform and press the fabric onto the exposed adhesive, keeping the fabric taut.
6. Now peel away the rest of the backing, still making sure your keeping the fabric taut all the time.
Then press onto the adhesive surface smoothing over with the palm of the hand.
7.Double sided pelmform - peel the backing
off the reverse side of the Pelmform and press
the allowance all round the pelmet into place,
snipping the allowance where necessary on
curved edges (do not snip right to the edge of
the Pelmform). Place the lining centrally on the
reverse side and smooth onto the Pelmform,
having first turned under a small 1-2cm seam
on all four sides to neaten. Now slip stitch the
lining to the main fabric.
8. For a proffesional and attractive finish sew a
braid to the top and/or bottom of your pelmet.
The use of touch and close fastener will permit
easy hanging to your batten.
Using Pelmform to make Tie-backs:
1. Choose and cut out the shape of your own choice (e.g crescent). Then cut two pieces of fabric to the
same shape, but approximately 1-5cm wider all round.
2. Peel off one side of the backing, place Pelmform on the fabric and press into place.
3. Peel the backing off the reverse side of the Pelmform, snip the seam allowance all round then fold over
and press into place.
4. Take the second piece of fabric, place centrally on the reverse side and press into place. Turn under the
allowance and slip stitch the two fabrics together.
5. To finish your tie-back, sew a ring at each edge on the reverse side.
