Carol, That was what I wanted to do. We had a devil of a time trying to make a few grommets, and I think mine were too small. Rather than look for another size kit and then having trouble I went with the buttonhole approach. Have a new machine that made it pretty painless. the problem was figuring out where to put the holes.
Darrell, thanks for the info on fishing line. I'll keep that in mind for other projects. Can't get my mind around trying to do it 76 times for the curtains. For a pair of slacks, or other clothes, that get washed often it sounds like a neat trick. The Scamp
curtains will probably go when they need a wash.
